It is fine to run your truck out of gas at the end of the day, but I would not do it every time.

runnin rc10 - Check your coupler, pressure line, and where the header attaches to the engine (there should be a gasket there).

to add.. you need to make sure and burn all the fuel.. you do not want any fuel left in the engine at all.. after the tank is empty I put my ignitor on and throw it on the starter box.. 20 seconds or so to burn all the excess fuel..

I run my engine out of fuel all the time while driving.. I usually can feel the engine cut out.. then I bring it it and let it run out of fuel.. I don't continue to drive it after it cuts out though..

I have to run it out of fuel...I dont have enough compression for the engine to run without backpreasure. . . which is gone when I refuel.

Setups for the stock XXX-NT and the Drake Edition truck are the same.
