open question to all 1st-gen owners

At 6-weeks the low-fuel indicator began to glow.I was across the street from a station so I just pulled in to top-off the tank,for a computer vs tank mpg comparison.
With a reserve amount of fuel,the car took an indicated 11.663-gallons,for a 10.6-gallon tank.
Have any of you ever dispensed anywhere near this amount of fuel into your Insight?
I had 518-miles on the odometer for this tank and the trip computer indicated 51.2-mpg for the tank.At 11.663-gallons I'd be looking at 44-mpg.
It's hard to believe that the tank/computer deviation would be over 13%.
Thanks in advance for any comments.
