Re: Fill fuel tank?

As the wings are usually part of the fuel tank on larger planes I would guess that filling them up for extended times on the ground would add to the stress?.

I very,very rarely fill my car up,either petrol or diesel I've never got into the habit of it.I did fill the Alfa up the other day for a long trip,the fuel gauge took an hour to register the right amount.....and you Renault owners complain about niggling faults!.

Personally I don't believe it makes a blind bit of difference apart from having to carry round a tank of full that adds to the weight of the vehicle.And in any case,the price of fuel is rising again and I'm already paying one mortgage so don't want the burden of another one to fill my tank.......
