Living dangerously

Lively dangerously is forgetting to fill up your less than 1/8th full tank and going on to the expressway, and less than 1/3rd into that journey, the scary LOW FUEL indicator comes up.

While trying to exit the highway, you
- turn off the aircon,
- roll down the windows,
- gets light footed on the accelerator,
- allowing the car to glide on engine brake (with foot OFF the pedal) as much as possible,
- struggle with a road map to check where the *beep* is the nearest petrol station, preferably a Shell cos that's where you have a petrol card.

slightly more than 10km from the low fuel light first come up, you roll into a Shell petrol station.
