Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

36 Mile Adventure

December 24, 2009 about Ford Escape

I drove to mastic long island from queens one night,and I used my mothers 2002 Ford Escape because I knew it could handle the weather better than my little Nissan.when I wgot to Mastif I went to the gas station and realized that I forgot to bring the key for the fuel cap on the vehicle,so I couldn't add anymore gas! The tank was very low so I went onto this site to see how far I could make it with the fuel light on.After reading the stories on here,I decided to just take my chances,drive at 55 mph,and pray my butt off (just like all the other stories say).Mastic Li to Queens NY is 55 miles (atleast that's what my gps system said),and the fuel light didn't come on until there was 36 miles left.I was very nervous but I made it the whole way home.so I just wanna say thank you to this site for giving me the info and courage to try to make it home with an empty tank.

What are you even What are you even doing here? Don't you realize that Ford never cmeilad huge power out of the 2010 GT? Apparently all the 09 GTs needed anyway was a new intake to match up to the big bad SS. Shame seems a whole 15 hp is all it takes to trounce GM. The only thing more embarrassing than the Camaro's inefficiency is your knowledge of autos. Know why Chevy put a big engine in the Camaro? Penis envy. Yet, the 4.6 comes out on top. See, man? don't feel bad, small things can get the job done

PLEASE! More ph8o;&#o217ts of more everyday people using a bike for everyday needs wearing everyday attire. I like watching open wheel formula 1 racing but if people had to dress like and have a similar machine to run a few errands I don’t think it would appeal to the most broad audience – its not reality. The same I feel applies to your photos.
