I ran my Civic out of fuel several times. Each one was a new tank distance record... that I kept breaking and going further the next time.

I've run my Fit out once. Now I know how low True Empty is, and set a nice distance record. I'll only do that again if my average suggests I'll beat that distance. That can only happen once a year in the middle of summer, so it's rare.

Edit: with a measured can of gas in the back ready and waiting.
