What does it mean when your gas gauge is in the middle?

Half-empty if I haven't filled up yet, half-full if I was down to almost 1/4 tank and only filled part of the way with "pricey" gas.

Depends on if you are driving somewhere that take a lot of fuel or you are at home and can get to any place you need to get to with a half a tank.

1/2 EMPTY
Once the needle moves from the FULL mark, you are using fuel.
That means your tank will be EMPTY unless you topup.
No amount of positive thinking will change the direction your needle moves.
It's 1/2 EMPTY
