How about installing an after market electric pump to save these blues? Having said that, during the earlier days when there were not so many fuel bunks and lesser day/night stations, my late father everyday used to fill 5 ltrs of petrol in the Amby while returning home. When asked, he said that it was for emergencies since one can't be wasting time looking out for a bunk.

I've followed that practice ever since... I do not fill 5 ltrs everyday, but see to it that the fuel gauge's needle hovers somewhere near the half mark..

I always fill at first instance of the Fuel lamp blinking. In the Safari it starts blinking at apprx 11-12ltrs and remains constant when 10ltrs is left.

This way you're sure and have enough buffer at hand.

These days,am playing safe by heading to bunks when my tank is half empty- in fear of unavailablity of fuel and subsequent rationing at bunks (after rains and lowering crude oil prices I feel the situation is improving)
