Fuel levels for autox

Just curious what others are doing...
> minimum gas, minimum weight - any starvation issues?
> full tank, better F/R weight balance and maybe keep the rear on the ground more?
> half tank, compromise and more side to side weight transfer?

Typically I run with around 1/4 to 1/8th, but haven't tried anything else. Thoughts?

At the match tour, my gas light came on during my first run. Between my co-driver and me, there were 8 runs total, and fuel starvation wasn't a problem. Weight balance is good, but weight loss is better. A gallon of gas weighs ~6lbs, so a half tank is ~40 lbs of sloshing ballast.
