    dont let it get that low on fuel, because that really trashes your fuel pump, when the fuel level is below a 1/4 the pump has to work extra hard

    I burned out a fuel pump when I had my Z28. PITA to replace.

    I knew a guy who was playing the "How far can I get with the warning light on" game (some people seriously try this) and actually ran out of gas in the parking lot across the street from a gas station. It killed the pump. Would've been ~$800 to fix at a dealership. He did the repair himself, but the part is ~$400 by itself, and then you have to drop the axel, drop the exhaust, then drop the tank, in order to replace the pump and pickup.

    Never go below 1/4, be nice to your fuel pump - and it'll be nice to you.
