There’s nothing more spine-tingling and never-wracking like driving on an empty fuel tank.
How far can you go? Can you really make it to your favorite gas station on fumes? Isn’t the fuel gauge just a suggestion?
I pushed my limits once. I was well below the last line on the fuel gauge, with the low fuel light on, packed to the brim with stuff. While going up a mountain — literally in the middle of nowhere, no cell phone reception — the engine started to putter. I lost all power. Outta gas. So I pulled over and did the old school thing — hitched a ride with a stranger to a gas station at a crossroads on the other side of the mountain, using the 5-gallon rubber lawn mower gas tank in the back of his pick-up for just enough fuel to get the car to that very station.
I learned my damn lesson the hard way. This guy from the YouTube channel Car Throttle pushed the limit in a 2000s-era Honda Accord with 200,000 miles on it. All things considered, he gets pretty far.
