Around 1/4 of a tank. Will risk it if I feel I can get away with it, but otherwise the rule is strict.

When I see a good gas price, I top 'er off.

Sometimes that's when I have to get gas. Other times it's a day or two after filling up.

If I'm driving around locally, I wait for the low fuel light to come on.

If I'm driving on a trip, the need to get out and stretch drives when I stop.
