Adam wants to share something and BB is mocking him, Adam brings up the Matt Fondiler “Dad’s shoes” incident.

Adam says he got the call today that his wife’s car broke down, Adam thought it must be a flat tire.

Adam was told it was a breakdown, but he knew it must have been a tire.

Adam is sharing how he’s never known the exact amount of fuel left when digital gas displays read 0, Adam says that Gary drove in a circle on 0 to find out how much distance he got, 17 miles, so roughly an extra gallon remaining.

Adam says he’s always called for a reserve tank, with 1 gallon.


Adam says the problem is you kind of learn that the car can go so far on limited gas.

Adam asks Gary about when he first did this, in high school and shares his amazement that he had a car with a digital gas gauge while in high school.
