What to do if my car runs out of gas?
Besides giving Slate Towing And Recovery a call so that we can come help you, the most important thing to do is to steer your car to the side of the road. Even if you are in a school zone or other areas where drives must be extra cautious, leaving your car in the middle of the road is just asking for an accident. If your car stopped in the middle of the road then make sure the break is off, it is in neutral and try to push the car to the side. If for some reason, you are unable to push the vehicle then do what you can to make your trouble evident to other motorists (i.e. flairs, hazard lights). If you are in the city and there is no shoulder then push your car to a side street which has less traffic.
Why did I run out of gas so fast?
If you run out of gas but feel certain that it ran out faster than it should of then there may be a problem with your vehicle. One possibility is that the car is leaking gas leading the gas tank to empty faster. If you are getting the smell of gas inside or around your car then this could be a possibility. It could also be an issue with your spark plugs which affects the correct firing of you cylinders and thus wasting gas. If this is happening then it is often the case that white smoke will come from your engine.
