Deliberately Run Out Of Gas?

December 17, 2007 about Honda Odyssey

Whenever I buy a new or newer car I always carry a five gallon gas can with 5 gallons in it. I wait until the car is down to about an eighth of a tank. Usually within 20 or so miles the low light comes on! Then record your mileage and drive in a sparsely populated area where you can pull off the road safely when the engine sputters. Your basically out of gas. Now record your mileage and subtract. Now you know approximately your mileage limit. I always get fuel before the light comes on as I don't want to burn up the fuel pump as the pump needs fuel to cool and lubricate the pump!
