I didn’t do what I preach yesterday, which is never let the gas tank get below 1/3 of a tank…
I damn near got caught on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge because of it. Why???
Because I was trying to beat the rush hour coming back from an offsite 2 hours away… Stupid, right?
Yeah… So there I am, sitting in traffic when the low fuel light comes on, and it’s sitting dead on empty. Truly an Aw S!!t moment!!!
Managed to get off the bridge and up the hill to the first gas station on the VA side of the river, pulled in and got hit with ‘this’ little bill…
Yeah, that is a $100 dollar charge… I had 1.7 gallons left, which is good for, oh 23ish miles… And $4.27 a gallon SUCKS!!!
Don’t be stupid this time of year, just stop and fill your damn car up, you never know what traffic is going to do, especially with the last minute vacationers!!!
In other car news, my driver rant has proven to be TRUE!!!
Men who drive blue BMWs are more likely to be aggressive than motorists in any other car, a study claims.
And the peak time for drivers to get angry is 5.45pm on a Friday as they fight the rush-hour – followed by the dismal Monday morning commute.
The likeliest road rage culprits are men aged 35-50 with blue BMW cars, the study of 2,837 motorists found. Drivers also reported run-ins with owners of Land Rovers, Audis, Subarus and Vauxhalls.
Now granted this was in Britain, and they also nailed a color with it, but when you equate the cars listed to the US models, they pretty much match!!!
