I burned out a fuel pump on an older car so generally don't wait until completely empty.

The reset is annoying for the trip computer. Also annoying is you have to reset the mileage, timer, distance, etc. all individually. I like to use trip 2 to measure each tank and trip 1 is between oil changes.

Don't forget you need to reset all of the trip items individually. If you want to reset trip 1 and trip 2, there are a lot of steps to do this.
I only reset trip one at each tank of fuel. Trip 2 is reserved for long trips.
On my first tank, I did not do it correctly, so the information was not only for that tank of fuel.

I've been experimenting here recently with the two resets. Reset Trip 1 right after filling up and measure combined MPG. Then reset Trip 2 whenever I go on extended trips to see highway mileage.
