I probably wouldn't since it might be dangerous, but I've thought about it.

I have in the past, but I can go more that 500 miles on a tank and using gas buddy helps to plan the stops much more easily. When I was traveling 900 miles between my home and the ship I was stationed on at least four times a year it seemed a bit more attractive to fill up the truck and cans at the cheapest spot along the route though.

Never had to. Chicago is the worst, and all I need to do is go home to escape it (I live in NW Indiana).

No. If this ever became necessary I think I would just park my car and not drive at all.
