To avoid being stranded on the side of the road, watch for the symptoms that your car may be running out of gas. The first indicator should be a dash board warning light illuminating that indicates the fuel tank is at a minimal level. If you have an older model vehicle that doesn’t have this light, you will notice your car stalling intermittently as the engine starves for fuel. If the engine is off, it may not start or keep running once it does turn over. If you run out of gas, you should call a towing service for assistance.
