Default 1/4 tank engine turn???

Ok well i was reading another post about a guy who said when he went around a corner his car would stall, i have the same problem, when i am going around a left corner my car almost stalls. Is there a fix for this, or just keep it past 1/4 tank??

Default well

Its a good idea to keep it passed half, im not sure about the fuel pump in your bonnes but it most vehicles the gas keeps the fuel pump cold and keeps it from burning up.

When I go on an onramp that curves and I take the turn at like 45-50 to get up to speed my car does the same thing. And it is when the tank is lower on gas only (I think). It'* like I press the gas at the end of the curve and nothing happens. It comes back on when I take my foot off the gas, shuts off when I press the gas again, etc. Does it a few times. Then is normal. I don't know if it'* something major, but it'* a PITA either way.

I've heard it happens a lot too.
