The last time that I filled up both of my cars were on empty, so I had my Mom fill up my Accord and (eventually) drive off (and leave the engine running) and then I filled up my Accord. I saved about $25.

Regarding Shaq's hack tip, someone commented:
My dad was going cross-country with a roommate back in the Sixties, and woke up in the passenger seat to find the guy absolutely floorboarding it through the emptiest part of the Nevada desert in the middle of the night. That was dude’s exact explanation: “we’re almost out of gas, so I’m going as fast as possible to get to a station before we run out.”
Bonus! The faster you are going when you run out of gas, the further you can coast!
