2 months ago, left a friend's house starting a 50 mile drive, I had 90 miles "left" on the tank. By the time I hit my 12 miles left point, it said I had 40 miles left. I got a beep and saw that my 5 dashes turned into 1 in the last half hour. Car stalled out as I tried to accelerate uphill when changing highways. Nothing like feeling helpess in lane 2 of a 6 lane highway in front of an 18 wheeler at 9PM. Rocked the car enough to feed the fuel rails to get me over to the shoulder narrowly avoiding a pileup situation with the check engine light possibly putting me in limp mode? (Happens in the WRX)2015 Forester ran out of gas when it said 70 miles. Outback and Legacy are recalled but not Foresters. Anyone else have this issue?
Be careful.... I'd like to do the same, but I'm concerned about running to empty having a negative engine effect and possibly picking something up from the bottom of the tank.I am considering on stowing a full 2 gallon gas can in it to see if i can make it to the 2.5 gallon warning light. Has anybody tried doing this yet.
The fuel pickup is in the front of the tank, so if you are low on fuel, going uphill and accelerate, your available fuel will be out of reach... it said I had 40 miles left... Car stalled out as I tried to accelerate uphill when changing highways. I CRAWLED another mile and a half on flat terrain, barely, and my car was still like "You can make it 30 miles."
From then on I'm more paranoid about letting it go under 4 dashes..
