lol - I actually needed the roadside assistance with my passat 1 time while in a rural area of Maryland. My gps brought me to a gas station that no longer existed (but a lovely new neighborhood being built) and I was unfamiliar with the area and needed diesel. I'd like to say there's no excuse for running out of fuel - even sometimes when diesel is harder to find - but not when I get 600+ miles to the tank. My diesel is "vented" so my 16 gallon tank can fit 18 or so gallons. The wife does tend to top off in hopes to extend the time between refills.
