I used to fill up my Challenger and a 5 gal gas can every Friday to get me threw the week when it was my DD.

Not to highjack a Compass thread, but my feeling is that the Patriot is not as forgiving once the light comes on. I want to say 25 miles is when I ran out the first time ... Good thing a station was in sight.

I'd say it's not a hijack unless it's sheet metal related. This is good stuff to know. Any other reports on the Patriot out there?
