We use +1 per full 8 points (no roll, just auto-augment) - that way you save the dice for important use, and +1/8 is, an average, a little less than what you'd get rolling and using a sensibel bidding strategy, but it has the virtue of speed and an assured advantage. Players tend only to roll when they *need* a major boost and are prepared to take a risk (and perhaps burn HP) to get it, which is how I think it should be.

All the best
