Ugh, I was trying to be greedy and I ran out of gas! I was at 472 miles when the car shut off and I had to pull over... Question, did this cause any damage?

Also, the guy at the gas station was a greedy douchebag. My friend brought me 1.89 gallon and the gas station guy put it in another 12.2 gallons... that puts me at 14 gallons in my gas tank... Did he overfill it big time and will this eff my fuel gauge and stuff?

:(

fuel pumps are cooled by the flow of gas through them. You can burn out your pump if you continue to do that. But I think this one time your fine.

If the attendant pumped the gas they like to top it off and get a nice even number on the dollars usually. I hate that very much. I would take your MPG numbers on that tank and the next one with a grain of salt.

BTW I stopped trying to get crazy numbers and just drive normal again. 37mpg has been pretty much my lowest though.
