Default ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This sucks. My car is officially out of gas. Absolutely none. Won't even start. Just sitting in grass that hasn't been cut in 3 weeks. On top of that, it'* dirty. Looks like something from a junkyard (very highclass junkyard, mind you). I'm so sad.

Yeah...uh, Chris? You might want to try putting some gas in it next time. I've found that they don't run well at all without fuel. Cars are funny like that.

Running it that low is a bad thing. Your fuel pump relies on the fuel to keep it cool. In addition, running that low causes you to suck debris from the bottom of the tank into the strainer assembly.

No gas in my car, none in the truck, none in any of the 3 cans that we have, none in the mower, and I can't find my siphening hose to get gas out of the 4wheeler or the go-cart. And, I have $1 to my name.

I know, but trust me, it wasn't intentional. It'* the weird angle my car is sitting at. It'* not getting gas to the pump, and I can't move it to change the angle. Even if I could, I doubt there'* much in there.
