I always brim mine too, but then again, I do mostly motorway miles.

In the grand scheme of things, the difference in weight is pretty trivial. The fuel certainly weighs less than an adult passenger, and how many of us really notice a difference in fuel economy between driving alone and with a car full of people? Still, it'd help if the Lag's trip computer readout was a little more accurate - by the time you hit just over 50 MPG, the resolution has dropped to 1 MPG.
