Out of fuel

Today was the second (third?) time in my life when I ran out of fuel. I am trying not to push my luck and so I usually drive around with enough petrol to take me at least across the country.

Doesn’t always work it turned out. Since my car is in the repairs, I am driving someone else’s Mazda. This car’s fuel meter is not working at all. It always points to empty. The trick is to put 10 CYP and drive less than 220 km.

Last time I was at petrol station I had 180 km done only. And today, when the car stopped, I had only 140 km since last dinner. Either all the meters are working bad, or the car changed its appetite for unleaded.

The worst thing was that I couldn’t troubleshoot the problem down to the fuel myself. The owner of the car had to come and try to start and check it. He then suggested that it might be out of petrol, despite the indicators and meters. So, we put some fuel in, and it worked.

From now on, I’ll be having full tank as often, as possible…
