Default Re: No gas money+ 1mile away= :(

Goodness knows I learned from my own incident, when I ran out of gas a couple years back. First thing I did was measure and notch a chopstick so I could "stick the tank" once in a while and get an idea how much fuel I had. Also, the new bike I've built has a smaller 36T pedal sprocket installed. While I can't go quite as fast when pedaling as I could with the old bike, it's WAY easier. If I had to pedal 10 miles to get home, I could. It would just be rather late when I get there.
