    Strange Things Motorists Do In Cheap Gas Stations 23rd Feb 19 at 4:11 PM
    Down Crystal Palace in Sainsburys Gas Station at the weekend. I have noticed something interesting. This was brought to my attention by a neighbour who also does this. Actually, I was very surprised that your average poor person does this, let alone someone who owns luxury or sports cars like Mercs, BMWs and Landrover SUVs.

    Fill up their tank half full of gas. They either do this because it feels like they are not spending much or they actually don't have money at that time.

    I am working class with a Ford Focus MK2 station wagon 1.6. I only do this when I am using an expensive gas station.

    I don't see any petrol station as being cheap.

    The more weight you carry as well.

    I will often fill up the car before going for a long drive, or even if I'm at the supermarket and thus there anyway, rather than making a special trip.
