I was guilty of it. Until I realized how the evap system worked. Basically if you top off, you are firing gas into your evap canister. There by rendering it just about useless and possibly screwing yourself with evap codes.

I usually do round up to the next $.05. That way when I look at my statement, I know if it's a charge I did or if it was someone else.

0% in the last 4 years.... Pretty shocking, but I guess not really when I think about it: It's mainly my "gas" card, pretty much nothing else goes on it.
