One of the most common reasons people get stranded is because they run out of gas. Don’t risk being in that situation. Always make sure your tank is at least half full and that you have a small but full fuel container. You can also get a collapsible one so it doesn’t take up a lot of space. You can use it and walk to a gas station.
