Add another. I was towing a mobile home cross country when the truck ran dry. I was able to coast into a gas station like I meant to do it that way.

P.S. I just remembered a good running-out-of-gas story. About a half-dozen guys from the Engineering Dept. went on a motorcycle ride. We were on our way back to town when the guy to my right ran out of gas. We were still rolling when he said it was already on Reserve so without skipping a beat I told him to flip his left side passenger peg down. He did and I pulled in close enough to put my foot on it and thus kept us both going that few miles to the nearest gas station. We made it just fine although my right leg felt like it was about twice as big as my left by the time we got there.
