PUSHING IT TO THE LIMIT

DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME

My car has a “range” display which tells you how much farther you can go with the gas you have left in the tank.  I’ve always wondered how accurate it is as I reluctantly pull into gas stations with 15 or 20 miles left in my range.  But recently I reached “0” (oops) while frantically headed toward our gas station which was still two miles away.  But…good news!  You have more gas than you think…I totally made it!  I was actually relentlessly lectured as a teenager and young adult by my dad to never let the tank fall below the 1/4 full mark.  Sadly, that was not one of my parents doctrines that sunk in.  But hey…I said “No” to drugs and isn’t that way more important?
