I would say it is less economical to brim your fuel tank. Fuel weighs about 4lb per gallon, approx 4.5 litres to the gallon, my Lag II has a 70 litre tank, so a full tank weighs about 63lb. That is alot of weight to be pulling around with you!
Currently in Mikey's garage:
1996 Mazda MX-3 V6, a 2002 1.2 8v Fiat Punto active (the Wife's!) and a 1998 Suzuki GN 125. Used to own a 2002 Laguna II Dynamique 1.8 16V (Now Sold yey!)
