How Much Gas?

You can often tell a lot about a person by how low they let their gas tank get before stopping to refill. I, for instance, am a procrastinator by nature, but am not comfortable with waiting so long that I’d run out of gas while driving. So, I wait until I’m at about 1/8th of a tank, but I don’t wait for the warning light to tell me I’m low. That says I like to put things off, but not too long.

A guy I knew in high school managed to run out of gas twice in the time I few months I knew him and had to walk to the nearest station to get a gallon of gas. That’s because this guy was a dumb ass.

I’ve also known people on the other end of the spectrum, who fill up as soon as they drop below a half tank. These are usually the types of people that always have everything in place and don’t ever look harried or rushed.

Where are you on the Gas Refilling Spectrum, and how accurately does it reflect your personality?
