Basically the longer you leave the door open with more air in the fridge (ie emptier), the more it costs to run. If you leave the door closed it makes no appreciable difference what's in there.

Then tell them to stop trying working it out on computers and go buy a few fridges and test that out lol fridges are not 100 percent air tight.
And I take it you live alone. But how many times do a fridge door gets open a day in the avg household? So yes a filled up one do use less electricity

It will use slighty less but the amount of energy needed to freeze/lower the temp of all that water is far more than what you would save by filling the fridge. In fact, a much more effective alternative would be bottles filled with air rather than water.

fill in your system spec and from there we can kind of estimate how much you might be pulling
