Re: To top, or not to top?
So I took a closer look in the owners manual, and this is taken directly from page 9-40 for 2011.
"Do not top off or overfill the tank and
wait a few seconds before removing
the nozzle. Clean fuel from painted
surfaces as soon as possible. See
Exterior Care on page 10‑90."
So GM says, don't do it. It doesn't give an actual reason but if it's in the manual, then there has to be a reason for it. The last two fills I've done, I made sure to not top off and I'm waiting to see if any real benefits come from it but I used to top it off quite a bit, sometimes as much as .50 to .75 after it clicked off the first time.
