doctorjay Posted August 15, 2013 Report Share Posted August 15, 2013 Was in Austin, Texas this weekend using my car as the getaway vehicle in my nephews wedding. After dropping them at the airport, about 11pm, I got the low fuel warning (50 miles to E). Was using my NAV on full-screen mode so i could manuever the highway access roads and get to my hotel. As i was coming down an exit ramp, and slowing from 70 -> 45 i looked down at the NAV screen and was amazed to see an icon for a SHELL gas station across the street. While looking at the NAV screen for other icons, i looked up and the car in front of me was completely stopped - barely a car length in front of me. Tapped the brakes a hit too hard, tires all squealing as i shot a look to the right, and then corrected into the right lane. Missed their rear bumper by inches, still going over 30mph and pretty sure they were totally unaware of what had just happened. I was thankful for the Michelin PSS's that I switched to at the begining of the summer, and to the amazing handling of this awesome (and unscathed) car. Anyone else seen Fuel icons on the NAV screen? Do they only show up when you are low on fuel? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
