Don’t keep driving around with the fuel light on

It’s not a good idea to make a habit of driving around with little gas in your tank, according to an article in The (Raleigh, N.C.) News and Observer, “Playing Chicken With the Fuel Light.” You might have to pay someone to bring you gas and you could seriously damage your car.

Rust, dirt, and other debris collect at the bottom of the fuel tank.
When the gas in the tank gets low, the fuel pump can become clogged, damaging the fuel injector and fuel filter. The problem is difficult and costly to fix.
