Running Late...

December 15, 2007 about Mitsubishi Lancer

Yesterday I got home late and I knew my car was on empty, but I was too tired so I just drove home. This morning I woke up and I woke up late so I had to haul butt to work... It takes me about 15 minutes to get to work if I'm going 90 on the freeway. and I had about that much time before I was late. So I accelerate super fast to beat all of the cars comming so that I could be in front of them. Right then my gas light turns on... Course I don't stop for gas I just accelerate even faster to make the green light.. course I make the yellow light before it turns red. fhew!! hee hee then I go about 60 on the city street so no one cuts in front of me and I can get to the freeway entrance first. course I make it first. and the second the arrow turns on I accelerate super fast again for the on ramp and rev my poor car up to 90 without letting it rest... I noticed that I was up to 5 RPM's before I stopped. Well I was late and my car is good to me. :) (can you tell I'm an agressive driver?? ha ha) I go 90 -100 MPH on the freeway... with a little confidence from other speeders... normally I wont go above 85! But 2 other cars were going 100 so I followed... Gas light on the whole way... I get to work in 10 minuts when I live 15 minutes away... I saved myself 5 minutes! I love it! Thanks to the other 2 cars racing eachother... idiots! ha ha I don't race! I just try to save time. :) then after work I didn't take the freeway I just took the city streets home going 5 miles over the speed limit and I never got gas! I drove 30 miles 15 of them going 100 MPH and I still have a lot of gas in there. I notice that when my Lancer is going to run out of gas... It looses a lot of acceleration power, and performance. It doesn't run up to my standards, and I hate it. So that's when I get gas... I'm not sure how far I could go though. I know that when I had a Mitsubishi Mirage I was able to take that little thing way over 80 miles with the gas light on... because I drove it till it stopped I couldn't even restart the dang car! After I got a couple gallons of gas back in it the Mirage was not happy! It was really scary! I wont ever let my Lancer run out of gas since that happened to me in my other car! It made a really ugly sound, and my whole little Mirage literally vibrated! It was crazy! But I traded in that car for my Lancer! :) I miss the Mirage though! It had awesome gas milage... My Lancer is horrible with gas! I fill up to the top, and 2 days later I have to fill up again! Course on days that I'm running late my car is really bad on gas because I accelerate and drive so fast. Someone else can run their Lancer out of gas and then tell me what happened... I'm affraid to do it!! :) Have fun.
