I'm not really sure why, but it seems like every driver we've hired to take us somewhere (auto-rickshaw or taxi) likes to drive with less than a quarter tank of gas. I haven't made my observation a scientific study, but all the fuel gauges I've looked at are always firmly on the empty side. And the boys and I have actual spent a couple of afternoons on the side of the road for emergency rickshaw repair/fuel issues. Jason's been with us on the broken rickshaw, but the below is his first experience with the fuel problem. Luckily, there are a lot of nice people in India.

We totally saw a guy in one auto pushing another. The guy pushing was driving with his foot out the side on the other guy's bumper. It didn't look very comfortable. Or, you know, safe.

Yeah - that's what they've done every time we've broken down (and yes, it's happened more than once). They just flag down a guy from the road. Crazy
