My "empty" light came on as I was driving my sister to the airport, about 20 miles away. She was running late, so I decided to drop her off first then stop at the gas station on my way home. Big mistake. I ran out gas on a four lane boulevard with no shoulder. Luckily, there was a gas station in sight. Had to walk my two kids across the road and borrow a gas can. Now I stop as soon as the light comes on.
