Running Out Of Fuel
Imagine this: You are driving down the highway in a relaxed manner. Traffic is quite busy, with some cars cruising faster than others but you are okay with it.
Out of the blue, your vehicle starts acting up: it is stalling; it is bucking and jerking because you forgot that you are already low on fuel when you left your house. Before you know it, the steering becomes increasingly difficult – no power from engine means no power steering – and the Check Engine light on the dashboard keeps on blinking like it is Christmas.
It is almost like sensory overload. What should you do?
Running out of fuel while driving is undoubtedly a nerve-wracking experience. And in some cases- it is also downright fatal. That is why it is extremely important that you know the things you should do during this kind of situation not only to keep you and your passengers safe but the other drivers and pedestrian as well. Pull over on the right side of the road as soon as you have any indication of a potential stall so that you can safely get out of your car and ask help from other drivers.
