I was just wondering as I was driving for about 15 miles with it on today just how far our GA's can go with the little yellow dot on? That is the farthest I have ever gone with it on any one else try further?

Nope, never tried it, because IT'S HORRIBLE FOR YOUR CAR! The fuel is what keeps your fuel pump cool.... let it run all the time w/o gas in the tank, and it'll burn out fast. Of course, if you like replacing that, then go for it!


I don't remember the last time I've had less than 1/8 tank. I don't even remember what my "low fuel" light looks like.

I've gone quite a while on the low fuel light...but I can't remember how long cause I was usually too busy trying to take her easy and get to a gas Station.

I think I went 40 miles once, but I wouldn't recommend trying it. We have a 14-something gallon tank and I think when I finally got to a gas station I put 13.8 galons in it. Also I think when the light goes on you generally have about 2 gallons left.

Yea it isn't something that I do normally it is just I had to make a trip for my work today and didn't have time to stop.

Ya...it happens right...

Sometimes I make a note to fill up and I get side tracked. I'll turn the car on and *DING DING DING* Oh **** I need gas.

Never often...but It's happened a few times.

I've gone upwards of about 30 miles, but it does depend on if you're in the city or the highway. My 30 miles was on city streets. You'd get a few more on the highway. You don't wanna push that mark too much or you'll be pushing your little yellow dot to the nearest gas station.

plus any crud at the bottom of the tank could clog up the fuel pump too.

ill ask my bro, he probably holds the record distance for that since he always drives it till that light goes on. can't wait for him to blow his fuel pump this summer.
