I had a car with a busted fuel gauge for awhile. The needle would freely bounce around with no connection to reality. I knew how many miles I would usually get in a tank of gas so I relied on my odometer to know when to fill up. Whenever I got within 50 miles of my estimate I would visit the gas station. This worked out just fine until winter came. It turns out that warming up the car uses gas without adding miles to the odometer. I was warming it up one morning about to leave for work when it stalled. At first I didn’t know what happened and then it suddenly dawned on me… that moment is recreated for you above.
