To catch any contaminates that may get in to the fuel system.

^ This. I hate pumping gas and running it down to about 1/8 or 35-50 miles left means I can do it once per week. Doing this also means less average weight which helps gas mileage.

I've gotten it down to estimated 5 miles remaining and it still pulled strong and felt fine. My old Subaru on the other hand would fuel cut at 1/3 tank or lower because of the g forces in high speed turns.

Thanks, some ppl here do not understand this, they think their tank is just full of gas and nothing else. So I take it they do not have a fuel filter on their cars like most of us. See i knew their was a reason the car company put that filter on every car, they must know something about what is in the fuel tanks. Thanks again!
