    Anybody drive their cx5 till empty?

    Any body ever confirm an actual milage on how much gas is left once the Dash says 0 miles remaining. I'm noticing at fill ups on my 18' Touring CX5 that once it hits zero on the dash I'm filling up to about 13 gallons. I believe the tank size is about 14.8-15 so that would mean approximately...

    18' CX5 Limp Mode at Redline

    So I was at a stop light the other day in a lane that was going to merge from 3 to 2. There was a Rav4 next to me and I took off to merge. Long story short, I decided to beat the RAV4 to the merge point rather than wait for them to pass, so I mashed the gas. I was in 2nd gear and saw I was...
