Are we talking filling half-empty, or half-full here?
When the weight of the fuel lowers the economy, pulling up to the gas station unnecessary cost not only money in burned fuel, wear brakes and other components, but waste the time.
It makes big difference when you are rolling down the street and just turn your car to the pump or you are driving 80 mph on the freeway and slow down to take the exit and than additional 1/2 mile to the gas station.
