Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

Coasts Uphill On Crowded Houston Freeway!

May 8, 2008 about Infiniti QX4

Well, I'm a big fan of going as far as possible before refueling. Really I just don't like to pump/pay for gas, but whatever.

So my SUV runs out of gas leaving downtown Houston, on the freeway, in the fast lane. Manage to coast across all 5 lanes, then made it up an overpass, and down an offramp, across 3 lanes of feeder road and into a parking lot with no problems!

It would have been nice if the power steering had functioned through the incident.

The point here is that the QX4 has amazing coasting range, and you can go for a good 30-40 miles on empty. It's when the gauge is about 3mm below the empty line that you need to think about just pulling over at the next station!
