I don't think you are being a smart aleck. That makes sense. This last 
time, I got gas shortly after the light went on solid. I tried to fill 
it completely and subtract that from 4.2 to see that volume. That would 
have let me know what I wanted. However, there was a credit card issue 
and I had to prepay $10, so the tank is not full.
