i love running my car as low on fuel as I can without running out of fuel. It drives my wife insane.

I have a 62L tank and was so proud to send her this photo of my receipt.

Successfully* splicing out a 15 metre section of shredded VHS tape, currently importing round 5 of 1984. Ha, Richmond still thought they were relevant.

Some of the tapes I’m going through are dupes and/or unlabelled. Will think about that next step after I get through them…

Older model car?
If not I’m surprised your fuel pump hasn’t packed it in yet. Most fuel tanks hold a little bit more than what is in the manual aswell, yours is probably a 66-70L tank I’m guessing

When mine shows 0km, i can only fit 50 litres, but manual says 58. I’ve probably gone 20km past zero, risk-taker that I am.

It’s about 2013 model I think, either way, wife just gave me the usual “eye roll” which I’m pretty sure is code for “you’re awesome, but I don’t want to admit it”. Will see if I can get 63L in next time…
