pure water


Step 1

First, the track must be fairly level. Also, this situation requires a warm season and a not too flat and wide gasoline tank.

Step 2

Secondly, the situation described below is only suitable for vehicles that do not have a fuel injection system and an electric fuel pump in the tank. And of course, you need to know the location of the drain plug in your car's gas tank.

Step 3

So, your car stalled because the gas tank ran out of gas. In fact, to say so is not entirely accurate. The car is not capable of further driving because at the moment the intake pipe in the fuel system cannot reach the level of gasoline in the tank. Although this gasoline is still available there.

Step 4

If, under all the above conditions, there is not a very long distance to the gas station, then it will be enough just to carefully add some clean water to the gas tank.

Step 5

Here you can remember a little physics. Almost everyone who has studied it knows that water, in terms of its physical mass, is heavier than gasoline. If you pour it into a gas tank, where there are still residual fuel, then it will simply displace the gas upward. In this case, the inlet of the fuel system will be able to reach the level of gasoline, and the fuel will be used for its intended purpose.

Step 6

If you did everything as described above, then with a fairly flat road and slow driving, you can still reach your destination.
