I’ll let you in on a little family secret: At one time I was known in my family for driving on an empty tank of gas. Family members knew that if they drove my car, their first task might be to go straight to a gas station to get some gas. It was partly strategic: it was my way of encouraging my kids to buy their own gas.
I would on occasion run out of gas. One time when I was in a hurry and ran out, I let the car drift under an overpass at a super highway. I jumped out of the car to find a pay phone. (This was long ago, way before cell phones, even before I carried credit cards.) My intent was to call AAA, of which I was a member, to have them send out their emergency unit with some gas.
