The other day I was getting the "low fuel" light and when I went to lunch I was looking at the prices at all the stations I passed. I decided to fill up when I came back to the office at the station next door. As I was climbing the hill on the way back, a couple miles from my office the engine started to sputter.. quickly I assessed whether I should turn around but there was no station within a couple miles so I kept chugging and made it to the top of the hill. It died right after cresting, I put it in neutral and turned my emergency flashers on.. then I coasted through 2 green lights for about 2 miles and turned in to an open pump to fill up.
I then bought some lottery tickets but didn't win anything.
