This makes off course only sense if you live near to a fuel station.
Not that good of an idea this time of year in the northern hemisphere. The air contains a lot of moisture, which can lead to water in the gas tank. The savings from the weight lost are not high enough to offset the losses incurred if you get enough water in the tank to make the car undriveable.
