I Meant To Do That

June 30, 2007 about Nissan Frontier

I work in the land development industry in Phoenx. I had been out driving around on one of our new sites that, of course, was far away from an existing development and services like gas stations. After spending a considerable amount of time out there I suddenly remembered that I had meant to fill up before starting the days's rounds. Checking the guage showed that I was below empty. I immediately turned of the AC (summer in Phoenix!), just cracked the windows in order to maximize my aerodyamics and made a B-line for the nearest station, which was about 6 miles away. Trying every trick possible, including obeying the speed limit and praying, I could see the offramp less than a quarter mile away when the engine sputtered and quit. I shifted to neutral and coasted to the downhill ramp and then down to the intersection. As luck would have it and proof that prayer works, the light was green and I coasted around the corner. The gas station was just uphill from there, so I tried the starter to see if there was anything left. The truck started and I drove to the pump looking like a champ; a hot,sweaty champ.

So did you find your keys?

Prayer works. The light is prayer sensitive, and won't ever turn green unless you pray for it to do so.
