    I do a full tank every weekend in the evening, have a bad habit of fueling from the same Pump Always, the attendant without asking now has the habit of withdrawing the Fuel Nozzel only after Auto Cutt-off to avoid Spillage or Wastage, my car has rarely seen the Amber Light.

    I follow simple formula. I drive around 250 kms and then get a refill. It take 12 to 15 litters of diesel. My ride 76 bhp mjd punto

    I usually refill when the needle touches the red mark. Thats when the tank takes approx 30 litres.

    I usually tank up whenever I am passing by a good fuel station if the fuel level goes below the 1/2 mark and if I have time to fill up.

    Tank up as soon as the Fuel light warning is on. It helps in getting almost correct FE.

    I always tank up after displaying low fuel.
    Purpose is to compensate old adulterated fuel by fresh fuel.

    But at every I tank up there is no improvement in performance in my MJD.

    I always fill it up at half tank no matter what and always do a tankful. Never-ever allow fuels levels to drop close to or below reserve.
    Thanks to my 1.9D. :D 1.9 D had a weak heart, a weak fuel pump. So never allowed diesel levels to fall below half tank and that habit still continues for my Punto too. :steering

    I usually fill tankful when I pass by a COCO.
    There were instances where I had to drive 20 kms for a refill, simple waste of time and natural resource.

    I have this very bad habit of filling up when the tank is nearly close to empty. Most of the time it is becasue I want to fill up at a particular petrol station which is not in the way of my daily drive. Always end up putting in more than forty litres of fuel at every refuel. I have to change my habit!
