    Default corolla 2010 GLI petrol air lock question

    I am posting this on behalf of my friend. He owns GLI 2010. For some reason he wants to completely consume the petrol till dead level but worried if it would get air locked but not sure. So he requested me to ask on pakwheels if this is really happens on GLI 2010??

    ^^^ This only happens with Diesel engines. GLi is Patrol until converted

    running an EFI car out of petrol is a sureway to burn the fuel pump too.

    So he can consume the whole petrol without getting into trouble but chance of damaging fuel pump?

    Kiss your fuel pump goodbye if you run it dry
