How Long Before Your Car Runs Out of Gas?September 13, 2016
In light of THIS recent article, I wanted to do a blog post about the same topic! If you’ve ever seen your gas light come on and stressed about whether to pull over immediately to refill or wait until the next county line… then you’re not alone. It’s a common mystery: How far can your car go once the tank is on empty? Luckily, we have a lot of resources to help! Tank on Empty is a site that allows you to look up your car’s exact make and model, and then tells you how many miles your car can go once the “empty” light is on. Just to give you an example, here are some statistics of how far a car can go until it runs out of gas completely, according to the website: -Honda Civic: average of 43.31 miles -Toyota Corolla: average of 45.89 miles -Ford F-150: average of 39.08 miles -Chevrolet Silverado: average of 33.30 miles I’d like to emphasize that these are just averages. Also, these statistics are all user-submitted (anyone can enter their car’s make, model, and distance), so you shouldn’t take this as scientific fact. BUT it’s interesting information and could be helpful if you ever find yourself down a lonely stretch of highway with no gas stations in sight!
