I thought you were kidding. The 'low fuel' light turns on. Is there a joke in that somewhere?

Ok, you are a guy.

LOL what does a woman say happens on the dash when she runs low on gas? Is there a hidden joke?

They don’t know about the light because they don’t run low on gas. That’s why it’s called the Idiot Man Light.

Women understand actions and consEquences starting at about age 12, we begin to grasp that concept at about age 75

Well I'm not like most men my age (25). I'm observant, alert. I would say my driving is 50% better than theirs. I don't say that in an arrogant way. I have a 95% driving score with State Farm. I rarely accelerate ridiculously fast and rarely brake hard. Once in a while, if I find someone in a hurry at the stoplight westbound Main by Dollar General, I will race them to 45mph (the limit there). I have taken my muffler off before which makes my 2.9 NA sound like a 2.4T w/o the turbo spool. Sporty growl. Even more off topic, I don't think I'll ever go back to driving a FWD Volvo. This RWD and white block with high end sound and super comfort is addicting.

Can I remove the bulb failure detection relay and run the light wires straight to the front?
