If you have ran out of gas in the middle of the highway, it is best to call AAA. If you do not have an AAA membership, call a family member or friend to help you by picking up some fuel and bringing it to you.

A highway with no real speed limits. It's German for 'the Motorway', yes, what the Americans call a Highway, a multi lane road.
