Avoid running out of fuel because this situation may have an adverse effect on powertrain components.

If you have run out of fuel:

Х Normally, adding 1 gallon (3.8 liters) of fuel is enough to restart the engine. If the vehicle is out of fuel and on a steep grade, more than 1 gallon (3.8 liters) may be required.

Х The service engine soon may come on. For more indicator may come on. For more information on the service engine soon indicator, refer to Warning lights and chimes in the Instrument Cluster chapter.
