Well you might want to park the car at an upward angle so the gas feeder stem can get to the gas. I have a 94 Honda Accord and assuming it has the same size tank, you might get about 2 gallons or three to be on the safe side. Also once you put the gas in and before you crank the car, hold the gas pedal to the floor for about 30 seconds and then let go.. wait a few seconds and crank your car. You should be on your way...

BAD GAS!!! Empty tank, lines and and float. Get tarnish out with carb cleaner and put in fresh gas with chemical to dry lines of water/whatever. Replace fuel filter.

It sounds like you may have picked up some small debris from the bottom of the gas tank when you ran it empty. You may need to run a fuel/injector cleaning solution through the next tank of gas to clear the debris and consider changing your fuel filter too. Sea Foam is a great fuel additive and I recomment trying it full strength. Hope this helps!

Out of gas


If your car is anything like my truck, there is a relay switch under the dash. When the fuel gets to low, it shuts the car down to prevent damage to the fuel pump. It should be right under the passenger side dash, on my truck there is a reset switch. Look for this, if you can't find it, you may need to have the car taken into the dealership to have it done. You should never let your car get that low on fuel for various reasons, this being one of them. Good luck.

Where to buy inexpensive


That sounds very right. The most inexpensive place to get a new replacement is at your local auto parts store. It is not a difficult procedure. Good luck.
