Running On Empty
Interesting table over at lewrockwell.com that might set your mind at ease, or not, when your Low Fuel warning light comes on in your car. It tells how far you can expect to drive after that light comes on.
I can expect to drive 35 to 80 miles in my Ford F-150. That's little comfort as it drives me nuts just having the light on to begin with. Plus, once I hit a quarter tank, the needle seems to drop very quickly toward empty. I'm guessing that has something to do with the shape of the gas tank?
The wife's Hyundai Elantra can expect 30 more miles after the light goes on. Again, little comfort there as I wouldn't be keeping track of the miles after the light goes on.
