Yeah I was worried a few times, it really helps with discipline in one's driving to not have any gas left! I actually had another gallon to go and to think that I didn't drive well the whole time! I took roads that must use 3rd gear and had passengers a lot of the time, and windows open.
I'm thinking about buying a gallon and keeping it in a container just in case I ran out. I would then be able to find a gas station within 40 miles.

Without a scangauge, I would guess that going 45mph is more efficient than going 60mph. Have you calibrated your SG yet to see what the perfect speed is?
