    The only issue on the paj is there is a difference in fuel capacity between the car pointing up or down
    The max amount of fuel is the car pointing down at the front, in my vehicle the difference depends on the angle and can be as much as 8lt, so if you want to measure fuel Economy, just fill at the same angle

        Shouldn't be a problem, I fill to the brim every time too.
        Just don't fill it to the brim and then leave the car out in the hot sun straight away for a length of time. If the fuel in the tank gets hot enough it's volume will expand slightly and may cause a minor overflow situation.
