Actually, I would argue that sensitivity plays a part in this conversation. Take another look at tanstaafl14 (https://www.greenhybrid.com/discuss/members/tanstaafl14/)'s comment about advocates for...

Re: Hybrid cars may pose silent threat to the blind

Re: How to fill tank to get better mpg in Prius

No, you do not get 5-6 mpg better for topping off your tank. You might travel more miles on that tank before you have to fill up, but the OP's original suggestion sounds as if it must be incorrect....
