By then, my indicator came on whenever going up and down. Was a scare. Next morning the pump had been repaired and no issues. Otherwise, I had to go to another town about 20+ kms. That had me thinking. How many more miles to go till ...
Thanks again.

I faced the same problem once. Had gone to Khajiyar in an esteem. I got out of the situation as it was hilly area and i kept on moving in neutral with the enjine on. Fortunately i reached a petrol pump otherwise i would have been in a fix. The road was pretty deserted.

So while this is the cost of keeping that extra fuel, what are the benefits???
the benifit being is that once past half tank mark the air-fuel mixture is not maintained accuratly & FE decreases
so actually it is advised to keep tank about half mark.

and also from social point of view it makes sence. you never know when emergency will come up & how long would u have to go........
