Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

My '92 Cavalier

April 19, 2008 about Chevrolet Cavalier

My '92 Cavalier doesn't go more than 5 miles after hitting empty. I found that out a few years ago when I was single. Twice, my car ran out of gas in the span of about 6 months. Each time, a guy I was dating (different guy each time) let the car go to empty, thinking we would make it 10 miles back to my neighborhood. Both times, the car stopped halfway there.

The first time, it was about 80 degrees out (in Texas) and my date was about 50 pounds overweight. He insisted on pushing my car to the next exit where there was a gas station - about 3 miles down the road.

The second time, I told the guy what happened to the first, but he didn't believe me. We ended up stopped in almost the same place on the highway. That time, it was about 90 degrees and this guy was also about 50 pounds overweight. He walked to the station and bought a gas can and gas and walked back.

I learned a lesson from them. I never let my car get past 1/4 full. And never to empty.

maybe you should date guys who are not overweight, extra weight kills fuel economy

P90X is an amazing fnisets program. I started it February of 2010 and gained a lot of strength. My husband actually lost 100lbs on 2.5 rounds of P90X. The great thing about the system is that it doesn't just give you the workouts and just lets you go it also comes with a nutrition program which teaches you on how to eat correctly. Remember that "abs are made in the kitchen". No matter how much you workout, if you don't eat correctly you are not going to get the amazing results you deserve.I do not recommend you buy "pirated" P90X DVD's you won't get the support that Beachbody offers you. It will give you that extra accountability you need. After I did P90X I did do Insanity, and that is where I lost a lot of weight. It had more cardio and it melted off the fat.Good luck and let me know if you have any questions. I am a Indep. Beachbody Coach and would love to help out! Happy New Year!
