Have you seen that episode of Seinfeld where Kramer is test driving a car “for” Jerry and he sees how far he can drive it when the gas tank is reading empty? Eventually the needle “breaks way off” as Kramer and the salesman push the limits of what they (and the car) can tolerate. Obviously that scenario is a bit extreme but I’m sure each and every one of you have tried to go a few extra miles on that gas tank before you final gave in and pulled into a gas station. It’s okay, you can admit it. We all have done it.
(Side note: Do any of you drive super cautious as you approach the last miles of your gas tank and then resume driving like Charlie Kimball after you fill it up? Or is that just me?)
