Fill to fill pump shutoff strategies for consistency

I have been always getting a lot of variability I feel in my MPG calculations more than I suspect the car is actually generating.

Recently and this never occurred to me that there's apparently some strategies to how you set a pump and let it shut off.

I try to use the same pump. I click it to the highest flow notch and let it click and hang it up..

One method I read about was letting the pump run till it clicks, wait 30 seconds and fuel to the next cut off.

What are your thoughts and what methods if any do you use to get the most consistent results at the pump?


Too much junk to list. From a 10mpg caddy limo to a 5 speed Saturn
