A long time ago I started a trip with 1/4 tank of gas in a SUV thinking it'd be plenty, and then I got stuck in a total gridlock with no exits 5 miles in either direction. That was ridiculously stressful, wondering if I'll get stranded.

After that, I start looking for gas stations when my tank is 1/3 to 1/2 full. Never had to deal with such a nightmare again.
yep i think i will start refueling at half mark now.
