At Least 10 Miles After E

September 16, 2016 about Ford Explorer

I just got home. I was driving home from work and noticed suddenly that the tank was showing "E!" I started to realize my preferred Gas Station was a good 10 miles or so away, and decided to finally push it and find out. I made it. So the minute I got home just now I went ot Google Maps and measured the route I took. I made note of the spot where I was when it first showed"E" and made the beeping sound so this is pretty accurate. I measured just about 10 miles (9.8) from point to point. THis is good to know. I saved $9 by buying where I do, and they pump it for you, which is always nice :-)

I drove about 18 miles beyond E in 2007 Ford Explorer. About half of that was highway speed. I like to push the limit and I was running late. I know it's bad for the fuel pump though. Just glad I was able to make it to the gas station. Not sure it makes a difference but I made sure the air conditioning was off.
