I start looking for fuel at half tank. It is not extreme because I don’t drive much (about 8,000 miles per year). Also, it lowers stress. I “start” looking for gas, meaning if I find a station I want, I will get gas. If not, I will just keep driving and singing along to the music. To me, waiting until 1/8 is extreme and stressful. You have the stress of being forced to get gas, and you have the disappointment of sometimes settling for a station you don’t want.

What print out did you happen to give them? I called my dealership to ask if they would calibrate the MPG and after the service woman I spoke with consulted "the lead tech guy" she told me that they didn't have the ability to perform such calibrations... -_-
