Re: That's what I was thinking. But then today..... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I ran out of gas 20 years ago in the 90 9000T. When a Saab 9000 runs out of gas, it's really empty because of the fuel pump container thingy. It uses the venturi to keep the pump container full, pulling from the bottom of the tank sump. I was thinking there was a small hole near the bottom of the container to allow fuel to sneak in, should you run it dry. If not, there should be. You might have to wait a few minutes after you dump a can of gas in to get enough into the container to get the pump primed and get the venturi going again to refill the container. Am I remembering correctly?
