Just learned the fuel tank which I thought held 32 gallons, actually holds 20. This explains why I have so frequently run of gas on the road. You see, the problem was not a malfunctioning fuel level gauge, but a defective operator. Is it not amazing the facts one learns from the owner's manual? Here is a tip... read yours!
If you run out of gas living in a one horse town, you can usually limp off to the side of the road and deal with it. In a busy metropolitan area, it can be really dangerous...clipping along at 70 mph with some driving 90, big trucks, distracted drivers etc..from the #2 lane trying to make it to the shoulder right of the #5 lane.
We have had a few drivers at work run out of fuel in the trucks...pain in the butt...you have to pull the filter and prime the engine manually...after that you are lucky if five gallons you can limp to a truck stop with.
Glad you got it all figured out, John.
