Ran Out Of Gas On Freeway-Gauge Showing 1/8Th Tank

December 14, 2014 about Audi A4

So... Gauge about to hit the red line for what is supposed to be close to a two gallon reserve, trip computer showing 35 miles until empty.

15 seconds after slow cruising in traffic, car stalled out and would not restart.

Had to be pushed off the freeway and towed to a gas station.

Only had the car a week, car gave no indicators prior to stall out, other than 10 seconds of rough running and a blinking check engine light.

The gas gauge is apparently subject to adjustment via a specific procedure that should correct this issue, that procedure includes replacing the gas level sender.

I think it's frightening in the anoumt of time and frequency of things done and shared online especially when you look at the scope of how much impact technology has on our everyday lives. It wasn't that long ago when we weren't doing any of these things.My question is: What are we NOT doing anymore in our lives that have made room for all this online activity?

All of the new-from-the-factory hybrid cars sold in the U.S. tyilcalpy carry an 8-year / 100,000 mile warranty on the battery. In states with California-standard emissions regulations, the hybrid battery warranty is 10-years / 150,000 miles.If the battery fails during the warranty period (which is extremely rare), the carmaker has to replace it for you FREE.That's as long as you don't void the warranty by doing things like crash the car or tamper with the battery or damage it by improperly modifying the car (such as punching through the battery casing with screws when installing things like 1000-watt speakers). I own a Prius, and with a warranty like that on my car, I'm not worried. I bought mine in New Jersey, which has California-standard emissions regs, so I'm covered for 10 years / 150,000 miles.
