Ran out of fuel... Stupid guage
Well, when I got the truck, the last owner said "near 1/4 tank is empty". Well it stalled coming out of a turn just under 1/2 tank. Thought, I better go easy till I come up to a station. Stopped by work. When I came back out, she didn't wanna start. Uh oh... Ok ok, I'm goin to the station now. I putted out of the plaza to the light and it dies right before I'm about to pull out onto a 55mph 4-lane. Crap!!!
Long story short, after two trips to the station, using an empty 1-gal oil jug in my bed, 2 cop cars, a liscense check, my gf being an hour late to work, and possibly hurting my vp... I found out my tank took 2 gallons to start again, and 24.5 gallons before the pump shut off at $75 and another 7.5gal before it clicked for a grand total of almost 34gal right on the dot... From bone dry.
Lol just thought I'd share my early morning troubles...
