    Technically you are not wrong.
    Additionally, regularly running below 1/2 and staying below 1/4 the fuel pump is no submerged
    In fuel. The fuel acts like it’s own “cooling” system.
    Pump can degraded faster because of heat build up in the pump.

    I’m not saying it still does, or always does, but it has happened,
    so it’s good practice to prepare to fill up after you are under half, before you hit 1/4.

    The best and most economical method is using “fleet fueling practices”
    Using “averaging” the “buys” and only filling what you used that day, you on average paid less
    Either as you return( better) from the day, top her off so your ready to good.
    Or first thing in the morning ( worse ) as it leaves you a task to do first.
    Plus gas is usually cheaper EOD then before the morning rush.

    Also “buy the ****ing dip” lmao

    Well, I seem to only be challenging my self on here.

    I stepped it up a bit. 45.950 Litres.

    I reset the trip meter when the fuel mileage went blank (usually happens when you have 40km left) i then drove a whole 100km on the highway past that point. So, 60km past the estimated remaining range.

    I wonder what the average price of a litre of fuel was in 2015 at the start of this challenge. When I purchased my Micra in Jan 2021, a litre of gas was $1.02 and a fill was forty something dollars.....My last fill was $2.149 a litre...something I never expected. My joy riding days are over, and I now make my trips count......Things could be worse, I could be driving a monster truck....

    I never thought I'd ever spend 100$ worth of gas to fill the tank of my Micra....

    Nor I Sir, nor I!......I knew $1.02/litre I was paying when I purchased the car was not going to last, but I didnt think that it would reach well above $2.00/litre, either. I'm glad I did my joy riding with it when I did......

    Who know that it would ever cost 100$ to fill up a Micra....
    The scary thing is I filled up in Abbotsford, in Vancouver gas cost at least $0.10 more per litre
