My car has a big gas tank. At 18.5 gallons, a full tank will get me anywhere from 515 to 525 miles of range. I used to let it almost completely empty, down to like 25 miles. But I’ve gotten in the habit of going to fill back up when it get to either a half or little less than half.
Last week, what turned out to be overblown fears about gas shortages had people panic buying gas, fighting at the pump and taking a relaxed attitude toward fuel storage guidelines.
We asked readers when they filled up their tanks. These were their answers.
