Tank on EmptyTank on Empty
 

It'S All True

June 3, 2008 about Honda Civic

I have an 86 Civic and that thing just goes and goes, even on empty. There's not an actual empty light that comes on but I've driven daily for two or three weeks after the needle hit the E, easily 50+ miles on multiple occasions. Also, that 12 gallon tank it is? I wouldn't believe it if it wasn't for the owner's manual saying so; I've never put 10 or more gallons in at one time, EVER. No matter how many miles I rack up on one tank and how far below the line it goes, it never uses more than 10 gallons at once. I guess I'll just have to see how far I can go under the E one of these days...

I have an 05 civic lx, and the most i've ever put in my tank is 10.5 gallons, with the empty light coming on. I'd rather not risk pushing it to no gas, but it definitely can go longer! It's also better for your car to not go completely empty, I'd rather not do any damage - you're going to have to buy the gas eventually, right?

Lets re-arrange your question so that even you fully unndsrtaed what you are asking . What would be a good deal for a sixteen year old car -almost two decades with mileage unknown -I think it may have over 100,000 miles , maybe 125,000 , maybe 150,000 , maybe 200,000 , I'm not sure . Well , if its 16 years old and they only drove an average of 15,000 miles a year x 16 years then it just may have 240,000 miles . So, based on FACT , I think you should pay about $ 500 because if the transmission goes that's $ 2000 for a rebuilt one , if the motor seizes thats $ 3000 for a rebuilt one , if the compressor locks up that's $ 500 , if the front axles CV joints leak , that's another $ 400 . Then there are tires, brakes, hoses , electrical and when you are done spending $ 5000 its still a $ 500 car . These are called throw away cars . You buy them for $500 , and drive fromn A to B , if they begin to cost big bucks you dump them .You do not keep throwing money into a bottomless well . Capiche ?

This is a fabulous sktceh. I do hope you will accept my entry though as it's not quite exact - mainly due to the fact I actually did the card yesterday afternoon before seeing the sktceh and then later thought it was so uncannyly like the sktceh that I just had to enter it. I do hope that is okay!!Great work yet again from the team. Thanks for doing the challenges.Ann xxx

The exsnntioes look nice! I want to try extensions out one day just to see how I would look like with longer hair. The only thing is that my friends all tell me it's a pain to get them out. :/
