I never fill up before the light is solid orange. I've hit " --- " a couple of times. Minus 15 miles is achievable. I think the tank holds 17.2 gallons or so. I typically fill up with about 16 to 16.5 gallons.

The fuel pump will be sufficiently cooled. The pump is cooled by the fuel it's pumping, if i'm not mistaken... And I don't think there is that much dirt in the gas anyways, nowadays. The gas has to meet very very stringent requirements. Remember, we live in 2013... Not in 1943...
