good info, although I know that I'm still going to cringe when I pull up to the pumps

In the winter I would reccomend that you dont let your vehicle go under a quarter tank. It doesnt matter what grade of fuel you purchase or where you get it, there will always be some water in it. If you let it go below a quarter tank there is a sure bet that you can run into problems with your tank freezing. If water freezes inside your fuel pump it will destroy it immediately. On most vehicles these days by the time you pay for a pump and to have it changed your looking at 500-1000 dollars. Save yourselfthe hassle and leave it above quarter tank all the time. A litttle gas line antifreeze never hurts either.
