That was just the fuel deficit LOL, his car floated him a loan till payday, Bonneys can do that ya know

Seriously, I have seen ours take 19.5 gallons once, I was outraged until someone here explained about the filler pipe LOL and tank variations

Yeah I would say it was low! Your fuel gauge must have been PAST the 'E'! I got a little scared the other day driving around with the needle at the bottom of my "orange zone", but when I filled up it only took 14.7 gallons! There is more reserve fuel there than the gauge allows you to believe... but now I know!

Don't count on that!! Mine was at the top of the Warning zone, and it took 18.x gallons to fill it up. I don't think the fuel gauges are very accurate...

I almost didn't understand the pic at first.....

Then I remembered gallons and USD...

I've paid over $55 for a tank here in Canada.... so $37 sounded really cheap... hehe
