New delivery tank of gas

Just picked up my ED at the local US dealer and
after getting on the road found less than 1/8 tank gas.
I thought delivery protocol was a full tank for the customer.

Perhaps you got your full tank of gas when you picked up your car in Europe?

For my last ED redelivery here in the US, my salesman drove the car out and filled it up for me. I left it in Germany with about a quarter of a tank.

I wasn't expecting another tank, but it was a very pleasant surprise. My salesman was awesome!

Nothing wrong with that. I was actually asking if you meant "ED = European Delivery".
