Fill fuel tank?

It used to be recommended to fill your petrol tank to prevent internal condensation and rust:

Forgetting about lugging around extra fuel and its effect on your mpg.

Is that still good practice?

Im thinking more about diesel cars and "water in the fuel"..
Will having a full tank of diesel,"topped off" regularly reduce the build up of water .. or does it not matter?

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
