As an efficiency nerd, this is a valid topic of discussion.

But from a practical standpoint, concerning the average car buyer, it's not. It just means they have to spend 5 minutes refilling their gasser a little more often than they otherwise would. I doubt most drivers even notice they fill up more in the winter than summer (distance driven being constant).
