When my 66 got to E, I found that it actually had about 4 gallons left 
in it. This was pretty safe for a college kid w/o too much money 33 
years ago as it helped keep me from running out of gas and it doesn't 
matter one way or the other now. Funny but I don't remember if the 
Lakewood was the same way or not.

Subj: &lt;VV&gt; How accurate is your fuel gauge?

After years of agonizing over my vair's fuel economy (it seems that 
you can actually see the needle moving toward empty sometimes) 
something struck me...It seems that the gauge reads wrong. I believe 
that the "halfway point" is actually somewhere between the indicated 
1/4 and 1/2 mark. Anyone else experience this?
