Winter at about half tank. Summer I let it run as low as possible, because I think you get some of the last guy's gas selection when you fill (heard it can be almost a gallon), and I don't want to dilute the premium too much. Considered trying to follow 'premium users' but it seldom works out, I don't have the patience, but imagine people would get hinkey if I hung around waiting for a nicer car to fill up before using a pump.

I think the sensor has buffer or underestimates range, perhaps using the lowest recent mpg to figure it - lowest range I've seen is about 15miles, but estimated over a gallon left based on what I was able to put in. Every time they ask on a survey, I tell 'em that what I'd want is a bigger gas tank - even a few more gallons would be much more convenient.
