Why? well at 1/2 tank you have options to find the best price (for instance we have recently learned to NEVER buy Diesel in IN or MI - it's 20-30¢/gal cheaper in KY/TN).
At 1/2 tank, you now still have 75 gallons, Bob!
For those that don't know, IN diesel prices are a bit sneaky. At truck stops and most other locations in IN, diesel prices are posted with the word "EXEMPT" under them. If you're running under a DOT permit, that's the price you pay -- you're exempt from a higher fuel tax. If not, you'll pay about 25c per gallon above the posted price in fuel tax.
