We found an article online about how some of the technology you use every day isn’t as reliable as you might think.  Here are the top six “Gadgets That Lie to You Every Day”.

#1.)  The Fuel Gauge on Your Car.  You’ve probably noticed that after you fill up at a gas station, the needle goes to “Full” . . . and then stays there for the first 50 miles or so.

That’s because the thing in the tank that measures how much gas you have is just a rubber ball on a stick, like the one in the tank on your toilet.

So when you’re 90% full, it still looks like you’re COMPLETELY full.  And when it says you’re on “empty,” you probably still have a gallon of gas left.
