This. Those people who think that their fuel pump will last longer because they fill up more often are nuts, and/or believe in myths and old wive's tales. I've been running my tank to empty for nearly 100,000 miles without issue. Sometimes to when "---" shows on the miles remaining counter. I almost always run it below 1/8th of a tank before I fuel up.

I did the same thing with my last car for over 250k miles, and the same thing with my old honda, which had the original fuel pump to 210k miles until I changed it this year to support a bigger engine I put in.
