Died on Me
Driving home from a buddies, my 65 GTO died literally as I was pulling into the driveway. I noticed about the last mile home it was running a bit rough at low idle.
I was low on gas, but should have had at least a couple gallons in the tank by my estimates. So I had AAA add a couple gallons. It took a few cranks, but finally got the engine turned over again.
I let it run for about 5 minutes, real rough idling, more exhaust than usual, wanted to die unless I gave it some gas. Finally nursed it up the driveway and into the garage.
I'm thinking somehow I did indeed just run plain run outa gas. So I'm now curious...what size tank on a 65 GTO? I thought 24 gal, but can anyone confirm that? Also, anything I should be aware of regarding the fuel filter, fuel pump, etc. after running out of gas?
Damn rookie mistake...I'm more angry at myself then anything else...
