    I guess if it's in the interest of consistency to call every time you put any amount of fuel into a vehicle as a "fill up", Ok - but a 2.5 gallon top off after heavy city traffic seems a little bit unfair to classify as the "worst fill". It's kind of setting it up to fail don't you think? I usually tend to think of a "fill up" as being a full tank, or at least half if I'm trying to track fuel economy. Not saying the Colorado is exceptionally efficient, obviously it isn't, but I think someone reading that "worst fill" at a glance could be a little bit misled.
