    How many gallons does it hold? Is possible it may stop running with less than a gallon in it?
    I ran out today (yea gas gauge is dead). I thought I had more in it that I did. I guess I drove it more than I thought. A nice guy went and got me gas, I think we put in about 4-5 gallons then I got to gas station and put in another 14.1 gallons in it.

    If I'm not mistaken, it is 20 gallons which makes sense in your case.

    I ran out of gas in mine when I first bought it.
    I noticed the gas gauge was dead, I figured the seller wouldn't leave us with an empty tank, I managed about 15-20 miles down the road. Thankfully I managed to roll into a gas station.

    I recall putting in 18-19 gallons, I don't think I went the full 20. Keep in mind I did not have the gas filled up to the filler tube the way I have seen some folks manage it on YouTube.
