Things Everyone Should Know
Only get gas earlier in the morning. Gas is stored underground and in the early AM it is at its most dense and will give you more gas for your dollar.
Is your marker dry when you really need it? Revive the tip. Place the marker tip in rubbing alcohol for 15 minutes. Moisture will return to the tip and the marker will work if there's ink inside.
Once your gas meter reaches "E" you should get to a gas station ASAP. But keep in mind that most car and truck models are designed to drive roughly another 30 miles before they officially run out of gas.
