Petrol Shortage

I very nearly ran out of petrol on the way home from Corby this afternoon. The yellow petrol light came on as I was passing Cambridge so I fiddled with the Sat Nav and got it to tell me where the nearest station was.

I turned off the M11 and went down a few country lanes and eventually arrived at where Mr Tom Tom thought there was a station. There was no station, he was wrong! I set it again and chose the next closest. Tthis bloody directed me all the way into Cambridge another 10 miles away.

Thankfully I made it but I think it was close, however it's good to know that you can do 20 miles or so after the car thinks it's short on petrol.
