Running out of gas
I have about 900 miles on my CX3 and have so far gotten 30.5mpg.
Today I filled up. It said that I had 305 miles until empty. I figure that is 10 gallons until it shows empty, and they I will have about 2 gallons left. How many miles is that good for?
With my old car I drove it until I ran out of gas, noting how many miles past empty I got. (28 miles). I then put 2 gallons in and trusted I could make it to a gas station. I was told that was a terrible thing to do, as it would suck all the crud off the bottom of the tank. Don't know if that is true, but with 900 mile it should not have much crud, so the time to do it is now.
What do you think about all this?
