you really shouldnt let your gas get that low...


at any point under a quarter tank the fuel pump is strained. The fuel pump uses the gas in the tank to lubricate itself, and when there's no gas, there is no lubrication...

think of it as if you only put half the oil you should in your engine...

That what they say in the manual... but when all the bars turn off in the fuel gage... there's still about 7-10 liters left in the tank... The fuel pump is only strained if you actually runs the car dry...

Personally I only refuel when all my bars have turned off or there is a good deal on gas grin

It's not that the fuel pump gets strained from sucking when there is too little gas in the tank, it's because the gas lubes the pump, and also keeps it from getting too hot by cooling it. The only thing the pump relies on to cool down is the surrounding gas in the tank.

Like spaztikid said above.

If it's cold out, it could be the battery.

I know that the GTS's come with a secondary cold weather starter to assist with cold starts.
