Don't try this at home

Wasn't sure if I'd make it all the way home from visiting family--with about 50 miles to go, the low fuel/reserve light came on. Pictured a minute or two before the exit for home and gasoline station. Thought about just going home and worry about it the next day, but the station is on the way home, and the next morning a cold-start would run rich until engine reached operating temps, so it would be risky: I've only ever ran a car down once; it wasn't a car, it wasn't mine, wasn't my fault, and it sure a heck didn't use gasoline. It also happend to be at an intersection during rush hour, where a lane also merged, in front of a police station, no less!
