Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

Happiest Place On Earth And Back

December 15, 2007 about Toyota Matrix

Halfway to work, I work at Disneyland, and my light went on. It's about 60 miles round trip. I figure I went about 45 miles with that light on. I've been told that when the light goes on you usually have about 2 more gallons in there. This makes sense, since when I fill up it's only 10 gallons and it's a 12 gallon tank.

Anyway, I made it home safely and like Frank, I'm hoping never to go through the pain of that not knowing if I'll make it ever again. either way, the Matrix is a great car, though the hubcaps seem to either fall off or get stolen.

Good Luck, Joe

Man, sorry that your hubcaps were stleon, Adam. Those scumbags. :( If it makes you feel better, when my dad had a Volvo 240DL wagon, his hubcaps were stleon two or three times! But then, that was Stockton. It's more surprising that it would happen in Santa Clara. Well, the thieves just got some negative karma points, I'm sure!
