Wanted to see how far down I could go -- kinda like the classic Seinfeld episode


The fuel range reads down to ~30 miles, then the DIC shows this:

Continued driving produced this:

and a series of 3 chimes

I lost my gall and filled up before actually needing Onstar or AAA

Does Onstar automatically call if you run out of gas? Doubt it




Anyhow the 14.0 gallon tank actually took 13.71



Yea, I was very close



The most exciting thing I did this hour



:headbang:

Nice to know the warnings are there. Isn't there a light in the fuel gauge too?

I haven't ran mine that low yet, plus OnStar was canceled and they won't deal with me so I haven't renewed that yet either.

I don't remember seeing that last one before. :)

You better start racking up some miles soon!
