Out of curiosity, a while back I started tracking my mileage, writing down on my receipts my odometer at fill up and tracking it in my spreadsheet. I can notice the difference when I do more highway driving. Recently, due to the age of the car (and the driver :D), I've started driving slower, not accelerating too fast or going over 120 too often. Again, I've noticed the increase in mileage.

I was surprised about not filling up the gas tank in the Star article too. I've always heard you shouldn't let it drop below a quarter tank due to the build up of something (can't remember). Never thought of the weight issue before.

Also, I don't think it was mentioned, but unless your engine specifically requires it, do not fill up with premium gas. Regular is all you need, and will save you 10-12 cents per litre.
