Did you fill it the same amount both times? The fillerneck causes alot of foam and will shut off the fuel nozzle.

could be related to the fuel....could be related to the pumps. The kickoff of pumps is not the same between pumps....and you can never get the absolute same amount of fuel in a tank so #'s will vary some...

YUP,,,,that is weard!! I would think it's hard to calculate both tanks being they are both different sizes. When topping off your tank does foam a bit...try and fill up exactly the same way weather topping off or not and see what that does ya. I agree with this winter fuel sucking..... I've lost about 2 mpg!! Politics Prolly
