I knew it would eventually happen, and yet I kept bringing my fuel tank to the very verge... Well, now I have an empiric proof that my car indeed can run out of fuel.

It happened this morning on the way to work. Thanks goodness that I felt it a few minutes before and managed to park it in a reasonable place (brakes don't work when the engine doesn't...). A friend came and we filled a canister at a gas station. So no much trouble - a couple of lost work hours which isn't too bad.

I'll start being more attentive.
