So I?m driving home my new yellow Porsche 911 Carrera 4 that I bought for myself as a present for starting a new job when I run out of gas! Arghh! What kind of cheap bastards are these dealers? You spend all this money on a car and they don?t fill up your tank. It?s ridiculous! I?m totally fuming!

Had you gotten an electric vehicle to help preserve the world and our environment this wouldn't be happening. Serves you right!

If you'd had said it any of the other 364 days of the year, we might have done.

Plus the fact that I'm sure no one has seen any threads saying "OMG I'M GETTING A PORSCHE NEXT WEEK!!!" either :p

Plenty. And if your fuel gauge is bloody, you've got other issues.

Didn't you get a fuel voucher from the dealer to fill up at the nearest gas station? I got one when I picked up my Maranello a few weeks ago.

That doesn't always help - my brother's Firebird runs bone dry when the guage hits 1/4 tank :p He found that out the hard way.

I bought the same car yesterday and it ran out of gas before I got home also.

Strange coincidence.

That's odd they filled my tank when I got my 911 today, they must not like you or something

Quoted for truth. 3rd Gen F-bodies are notorious for lying gas gauges. You're playing with fire if you let it get below 1/4 of a tank - I almost found that out the hard way when I first got my Trans Am, but I managed to sputter into a gas station nearby. Whew!
