I almost pulled a "Curtis" today.

Drove the V8 to French Lick, IN for MG2014.

Pulled into a gas station about mid-journey to refuel.

The needle on the gauge was to the left side of the "E".

No harm, no foul.

You know, those days are behind me. I drove almost 400 miles yesterday and I didn't run out of fuel once!

Still do. But I didn't even use that, yesterday. I've turned over a new leaf.
