I55 southbound out of fuel please help.

Well, looks like I am out of fuel southbound on i55 going into the Joliet road ramp. If you can, swing by with a .5 gallon of fuel, or call me for exact location. The help people for the highways said they cannot help this late. Thanks, and I am pushing.

True to his word, Jarod camento my rescue. Naturally I had to put up with his bullshit "can afford a ducati but not the gas" crap, but that's ok. I'm home, and just figured out my 996 gets 22 mpg. LOL. Thanks Jarod. And as the saying goes, everyone makes fun
Of a redneck, until their car breaks down. Again man, thanks.

22 is pretty impressive. that's about the best/worst i've ever done on the rc too. 100 miles between fillups (avoiding gas light) gets old real quick. i average about 32 if i take it easy.

i like the fancy pants 999 dash that shows mpg average at all times.

Sounds like you are the fuck up. I remember getting a call from a police station a few years back. What was it again? 80 in a 25? In the wrong lane?

I came here to drink some beer and kick some ass. And it looks like we are all out of beer.
