Suppose you were to run out of fuel. Can you add a couple of gallons and
then immediately start the car? Just curious.

 However, if you only add a couple of gallons, it is likely that the fuel
gauge will still show empty.  Don't let that peculiarity worry you.

Yes, right, either that or it will show full.  Don't let that excite you.

added gas.  Other than that, no problem.
