    I don't know how many of us have the remote start on their trucks but has anyone else encountered this problem. If you start your car with the remote start and your fuel is really low (gas light on), does your truck turn itself off? This has happened to me twice and I'm thinking that was the issue. Any thoughts?

    That's how it works, so you don't run it out of gas. Start keeping gas in it and it won't do that. Mine has only done that twice in a year and it was real low on gas.

    Doesn't cost any more to keep a tank full than to keep it empty.

    Read the owners manual. The truck is designed to shut off if a number of things aren't met. One of those being enough fuel.

    My range in my 15 is horrible, I have to be like 100ft before I'm in range of starting. My 13 I could be super far and it would start. Not sure what the difference is

    Do you have uConnect for remote start?
    My 14 remote start with the fob is around 100 yds if I'm lucky. Usually shorter like yours if there is anything between me and the truck. I've been using the technique of looking at the truck and putting the fob under my chin when I hit the button if it doesn't reach normally. It seems to give me some more range.
