Another possibility is that maybe the 5 tank design can't utilize the last remaining liters when it's empty... dunno.

Since he has ran out of gas before, and then just repeated the same mistake twice in one Dakar, then we need Troy to make him a dunce hat, sit him in the corner and blast him with Barbra Streisand records on the hi fi all day
