i usually tank up on the next day of my credit card's billing date !!
I always fill after the low-fuel light shows up and then I almost empty the tank(drive another 50km). When on highways, I always fill up when I find a COCO or on entering some city.
I used to tank-up when I reach half tank for an year, but it got my fuel pump to fail. The fuel pump failed when the tank was 3/4 and I had to replace my fuel pump(10+k, got covered in EW), so stopped filling up fuel and always wait for the low-fuel light. There are different theories about fuel pump, but this is what I experienced.
One should never let car run for long after reserve. There may be chances of dirt, rust clogging the injectors and also fuel pump can be negatively affected. In your earlier case the fuel pump may be faulty. There is no way a pump would fail on repeated full tank drives.

what do you mean by reserve
When the low fuel warning indication lights up.
I have kept a 2 bunks both bp, and they are close to my place so when the warning comes i refill.
That way i am sure that if not for great quality of fuel, at least the adulteration levels are constant, hopefully
