Re: IF YOU RUN OUT OF FUEL, WHAT DO YOU DO
[ QUOTE ]
Invest in a fuel pressure gauge.It will flutter when you are running out and when your fuel filter is clogged.
[/ QUOTE ]I agree completely. I have a SPA tech digital fuel pressure gauge with the transducer in the return pressure regulator in place of the analog gauge. I have the visual alarm set for 55 psi. My return is set for 72 psi. The fuel pressure is usually rock steady but on returning from a horse show in Ontario, I was running on fumes by the time I got home. Went around a corner just 2 miles from the fuel station and the warning light on the gauge blinked. I watched the gauge all the way to the station and never dropped pressure again. The overhead gauge said 10 miles to empty when I pulled in. Filled up and it took 42 gallons!
I normally refill the tank when it gets down to 1/2 full but when it hit 1/2 tank, we were way out in the boonies, many miles from a truck stop.
