Nope. Mine is almost always 1/2 or more. Usually don't let it go past 1/2 a tank.
If you think about it, it doesn't cost you anymore to keep filling it up to full, than it does to fill it up to half a tank when you're on empty.

Actually it costs you more to do that since you're carrying around more unnecessary weight. But, I'm with you, I pretty much do the same. Letting the tank get bone dry is hard on the pump.

Cmon, you whiners (interpreted as BLOWN), you should be capable of at LEAST 28mpg. Even with today'* gas prices, I'm eagerly anticipating the day when the Zilla hits the road with a full tank.

Put $20 in on Friday, probably less then 1/8 of a tank left. That guage is inaccurate. And my DIC likes to yell at me and say low fuel during a hard brake.
