    Thumbs down OH POOP. I ran out of gas

    Right in a very busy intersection at the light. Only 20 yards from the gas station.

    I leave the car where it was (had no choice) and run across the highway dodging 8 lanes of oncoming traffic, to the gas station and wouldn't ya just know it........they were out of gas cans! I then take off walking to Walmart, turn around to look at my car and my GAWD, I must have had 50 cars backed up.

    Run in Walmart and of course the gas cans are on the very back wall of the store. Grab this little dinky can (stupid thing cost $7.50) back to the gas station I go and now see a full fledged traffic jam.


    And a cop! I walk up to the cop and tell him I haven't caused so much excitement since I was a young woman. Some guy stopped to help me out but as he was putting the gas in my car, I just kinda walked around pretending my car was actually his car and I was helping HIM.


    I felt sooooo stupid!

    oh dear!
    busy intersection = bad!
    but gas close by=good!
    otherwise you might have gotten towed by the time you tracked down some fuel!

    No kidding! Abandoned car left at a traffic light. Wonder I didn't see a wrecker with my car on it heading down the road. Gas station was close but walking to Walmart to get a gas can then back to the station then back to my car .......probably took an hour.

    I feel for you Lady Hobbs. I know that every time I get into my wifes van that little yellow gas light is on, it's a wonder she hasn't had a similar incident. Is a very low fuel tank the norm for the fairer sex? Just asking, not judging.

    I personally think it is. I feel like girls let the tank get closer to empty. At least I have noticed that with my friends. I'll admit though, depending on the weather, where I'm driving and how tired I am all influences me on getting gas so at times I'll let it get lower than normal. However, my car also gets around 40mpg so I can skimp out on filling up at half a tank

    we gots things to do and people to see...why stop for gas twice as often as you have to?
    Mind you, you ARE supposed to fill up before you run out, lol...
    I generally fill up at 1/4 tank. Light comes on at 1/8.

    Unless I run across a cheap price, then I'll fill up at half...save a few pennies is worth an extra stop...

    It's not only the gals. My husband puts in only $10 of gas at one time (you can imagine how little he gets nowadays). He is always under 1/2 tank and very often right next to the E. Me, I fill it all the way up after I let it go below 1/4. I hate having to fill up every couple days.

    Sorry Lady Hobbs, it seems my question has altered the intent of this thread.
