Your friend is wrong, to the car, there is no difference if you add a little or a lot of fuel at one time.

tom is right on of course, but if you are only adding this much and your tank is nearly empty then that can be bad. you don't want to be continually low on fuel, or run out of fuel. it is really hard on your fuel pump. if you are going to do this, do it on the top half of the tank and not the bottom.
