running on the light

I left Hopkins this morning for Placentia. My gas light was on. My trip computer said I could go another 32 milesi asked a taxi driver how far to Placentia. He said 32 miles.
My choice was to back track 5 miles or go for it the 32 miles.
What would you do?
Play it safe?
Well, I went for it.
Turns out it was 38 miles and the gas station was out of gas.
Fortunately, there was another gas station in town on the docks.
In Mexico, there are lots of gas stations.
Here. Not so much.
So, my new rule is get gas when I can.
My second rule is - don't follow my rules and go for it.
And have another rum punch on the beach.
