The math may work out ( assuming gas prices do not come back down) but in the long run - it is probably even.

I try to shoot for about 1/4 tank - although i am tempted to run it dry just to see how many miles i could actually go....

Kinda related ( at least WRT Fuel Proces) Depending on where you live - there may be some stores that offer $$ off gas.
I have a Kroger near by - ever $100 in groceries you spend - you get $.10 off per gallon.
with the 2 kids - we easily cross $200 - gives my wife and I at least 1 tank with a discount.
I know BJ's and Costco also have discounted gas - depending on the miles you drive - the gas savings could even cover the membership costs at those places.

First Milestone passed - 30 MPG (city) 5/15/08
Best City Tank - 8/31/09- 34.3 MPG (EPA= 20)
Best Highway Tank - 5/20/09 - 36.5 MPG (EPA= 28)
In effort to drive less:
Miles NOT driven in 2009 = 648 (Work from home and Alt Transporatation)
