Prior to getting my scanguage (just a couple weeks ago) I had been filling the tank past when the pump clicks (as much as 1 to 1.5 gallons). Now I am using the same pump, same station and only fill until it clicks. I suspect this will more accurately represent my mpg as filling past the click could be off by as much as half gallon every time I fill depending on how much time I spend trying to get it to max fill.

The only reason I filled past the click was to get another 2-3 days of driving in before having to fill up. With only an 8 mile roundtrip commute for work the fill past click saves a stop once or twice a month. But, to keep my sg2 accurate I'm just going to the click now.
