    I've always run my cars a full tank at a time. Only filling up every 2 weeks or so and all of my fill ups have been for 12.7 to 12.9 gallons only.

    Subaru really wanted to be sure we never ran out of gas lol

    Fuel light doesn't mean you're empty. It means you're low. Warning light...

    Well yeah, I never let the light even turn on. So that makes perfect sense now. Man I could be getting like 315 miles to a tank if I did. Right now I get around 294 every fill up!

    Looked at the manual, says the light for mine should come on with 2.6 gallons left. So it did come on almost a gallon and a half early. Hmm...

    You must drive like a grandma, or not be using 2 of your cylinders or something I drive with the gas light on all the time...I only put gas in my car when I'm in NJ now anyway. Premium is roughly an average of 40 cents cheaper than Philly/PA premium.

    I'd say its never an exact science anyway. How you drive, G-forces you pull in turns, parking orientation up or downhill, etc. all come into play with that stupid little sensor. I've put 20 bucks in a tank which should net me a 1/3 tank of gas and the light wouldn't turn off. Get in the car the next morning and I'm just under half a tank

    So, general consensus is I'm making a mountain out of a molehill and being an overly-paranoid new car owner?

    I'm sure that's probably the case, especially since I was so used to the Acura where the fuel gauge didn't even start to move off of full until 75-100 miles. So when I see it go down to 3/4 after 60 miles I get all

    Both my truck and my WRX get roughly 12mpg. You all need to STFU.

    It's all relative. I'm thrilled to be getting what I'm getting, coming from a 5.9 L Jeep Grand Cherokee ... that also used premium. Averaged about 13/14.

    Sadly yes I do. Although a grandma who knows how to have fun at least lol.

    Premium is at almost $4 here and I'm not made out of money right now. I only really drive on the interstate and the speed limit is 55 around here so I'm "speeding" at 65 already. I have my boost fun on the on ramps though! I'm happy with my MPG

    I see you post on here all the time but have yet to see you around town. Yes, the speed limit is 55 here but that doesn't usually stop me. I usually get 19-20 mpg with my car but that is because it's all city driving. I've been able to get 24-26 on the highway though. Anyways, let's get some guys together for a meet n' greet soon as this is great weather for it.

    Edit: Oops, sorry for the thread jack.

    I always just fill up the tank. Its always in NJ bc its cheaper. My light comes on when the gauge is about 1/8th a tank.

    YES! I told myself I have to ride the Tail before we move to Seattle! Plus, I haven't had the opportunity to ride it in the WRX. I'll do my best to free up some time to come.

    Subaru and GMC for not engineering a motor that puts out tons of power and is incredibly fuel efficient.
