Sometimes it’s tempting to try to eke out as many miles from your tank of gas as possible. But you shouldn’t do it. This video showing the innards of a fuel pump will help you understand why.
Your car’s fuel pump sends gasoline from the tank to the engine. It’s a crucial component in getting your car running, but it has a tendency to fail and leave you stuck on the side of the highway—especially if you like to run your car low on gas.
my son seems to be in the habit of driving around until his car is basically running on fumes before turning into the nearest gas station and filling up… been telling him for years that it’s just a bad habit to get into, and one day he’s not gonna be so lucky — and getting stranded somewhere, even a few miles from the nearest exit or gas station really, really effin sucks.
so yeah, i sent him this link though i doubt he’ll pay much mind to it… damn kids… lol
PS. he’ll learn one day though, i’m sure!
