On Board Computer Problem
We ran out of gas yesterday, in the rain, on an Interstate, in bumper-to-bumper Labor day traffic. I thought something was odd when the trip meter said 202 miles, but the miles to empty said 240. I just thought I'd forgotten to zero the trip meter at the last gas stop two days before. Nope. We coasted to the left shoulder at 265 miles with the BC showing half a tank and 165 miles to empty.
Thankfully we had just received our Cross Country club card the day we left, and a call to them had gas in the tank in about 30 minutes. When we stopped to fill the tank the BC read full, but then never went down from there all the way home. Be on the lookout and trust your gut.
