Before Running Out of Gas Do These Six Steps
Almost a million people run out of gas every year. If you continue to push the needle past the empty line on your fuel gauge, it’s only a matter of time that you’ll end up on the side of the road also.
So what should you do if you’re about to run out of gas? The first thing to do is “not panic.” Once your fuel light comes on you most likely have anywhere between 20 to 40 miles before your vehicle completely runs out of gas.
Although you have a few miles left to travel, you should take a few immediate steps before continuing to press forward. Especially if you’re in the middle of nowhere and have no idea how far it is to the nearest gas station.
