I don’t like it when the low gas light is on; my wife drives me crazy by letting the needle get real close to empty when we’re in the Camry. Its never in doubt but for sure I get real antsy.
So yesterday driving to the apartment the needle is real low, light is on. OBC says 30 miles. Traffic is bad so consumption is terrible, OBC goes down to 20. I change plans and get off the freeway thinking a gas station must be near but I have to go through several miles of residential streets. 15 miles now, heart is racing, I decide that I will fill up no matter what price I find (local gas station that morning was 2.57).
I see a gas station and its 3.09!! Holy crap, I figure I’ll push it rather than buy gas there. It was so deserted that I’m not even sure it was open. Another two blocks and the next place is 2.67, good enough for me and Carrie gets filled up. I think that is the lowest I’ve ever run the tank and I did not like it.
