I think one of the most stressful situations you can be in when you are travelling somewhere by car is not knowing whether you are going to RUN OUT of fuel.
This situation has happened to me a few times here in Spain because certain sections of the motorway system go through very rural locations where petrol stations are hard to find. Luckily I have never RUN OUT of fuel completely.
I guess that RUNNING OUT of fuel is less likely these days because of all the technology that we can call on to help us out in these types of situations.
These days I guess people are more concerned about RUNNING OUT of battery on their mobile phone!
RUN OUT: QUEDARSE SIN / AGOTARSE
Hope that helps!
