Running your FEH out of gas

2201 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  jarheadoo7
I have just purchased a 2006 FEH ( 75K ) from
a private party. The owner shared with me
an incident where she ran it out of gas. Seems
the FEH simply reverted to battery only mode
and she was able to go the 3 blocks to a
station and fill up. All seemed well after that.
Has anyone else experienced out of gas?

I wouldn't intentionally run ANY vehicle out of fuel. The fuel pump will suck out all the crud from the bottom of the tank, which could plug up your fuel filter and/or destroy your fuel pump. I did that in one of my old cars and it cooked the fuel pump, which took a $300.00 bite out of my wallet to get fixed.
