I've tested my luck while driving with my gas light on 3 times so far. The first time I went 26 miles after the light came on before I got scared and fueled up. This final time I went 40 miles out of neccessity before I filled up. This has been the farthest so far. I'm kinda scared to push my luck but atleast I know I can get atleast 40 more miles after the lights on.
Nope, I have a 1995 Camry and on EMPTY (went 42 miles when light was on, pushing my luck as well) my car filled up completely to 14.66 gallons. That was when I pushed the tab down on the pump so I didn't have to hold it while pumping. The older Camry's are amazing.
Looks like you'll only need to put a gallon in per week now. I wi-tard, I dwive tar berry berry far wif empty wight on, I toe tool now. Maybe you'll learn your lesson when you end up walking 42 miles for the first time or get reamed out by the mechanic who replaces your fuel pump.
Don't look for a chepeast car. When it comes to used cars, the best deal doesn't mean the chepeast one. Your goal is to find not the least expensive car, but a well-maintained one in good condition for a reasonable price. When choosing between a cheaper car of questionable quality and a more expensive one of the same model that is in excellent condition and has been well maintained, I'd without a doubt pick the more expensive one. You will simply save on repairs and enjoy driving it. Don't think they sell a used car or truck cheap because they don't know the price or simply they want to clear their inventory. If they sell it cheap, there is probably something wrong with it.Remember, the proper price for a certain used vehicle is not what listed in a blue or black book they just give you an average price in your area. The actual value of any used vehicle depends on its condition, options and other factors. Two cars may only look the same. One might have been maintained poorly, with noisy engine that consumes oil, cheap tires and corrosion underneath. The previous owner of another vehicle might have been religious about maintenance, was using only synthetic oil, has done the rustproof and so on. In this case, you would be right to pay a thousand dollars more for the second car.
