    I just go until it stops. Never worry about the amount since I always use a card at the pump.

    I fill up at Costco, and it's not real close to my house so I put in as much gas as possible. Where I live, gas is a buck a gallon cheaper than in California.

    I just put $100 at a time in it never gets past 3/4 of a tank so I don't have that worry Id need closer to $200 fill both tanks then Id stop when it clicked off cursing and swearing about the cost of fuel. when I brought the car 15 years a go it cost half this much to fill the bloody thing up.

    I just put $20 worth of gas in the tank when I get gas. Filling the tank all the way tends to flood the charcoal canister and cause a good $600 in repairs.

      Wow!! So very wrong and absolute ridicoulas answer. No way will it flood the charcoal canister. And you claim to be a Master Tech.

    I stop when the pump shuts off.

    I haven't done that since they installed card readers instead of requiring you to pay inside.

    Note: The claim that it damages the EVAP canister is VASTLY overstated.

      No. bax and others have diagnosed hard starts and check engine lites to saturated carbon canisters. Warming in an oven fixes them.
