Each mile I drove away from the ocean the temperature went up. And just before reaching the parking lot where the van was parked the empty light on my Nissan came on. So I made a detour to the nearest gas station and started to put in ten gallons.
If I only put in ten gallons every time I can pretty well gauge my mpg and how long before I need a refill. So while the pump is running I check my e-mail with my phone and forget about stopping the pump. That fill up was $54.00. So I now go and get the van that find it is reading on empty or swinging the needle back and forth so there goes another thirty towards a middle east oil man.
