To say "range anxiety" isn't a thing with an ICE vehicle is wrong.

Tons of ICE vehicles exist with very inaccurate fuel gauges. Particularly older high end super cars.
Come on man you are making up BS. I live in a rural area and drive into Northern Virginia 5 days a week. The nearest gas station is 20 miles from my house on my way to work. I rarely let the gauge get to empty because either going into work or coming home, I can recharge any of my ICE vehicles in 5 minutes and have 400 miles of range. I drive all over West Virginia, rural Pennsylvania, rural New York state, New England, Southern Virginia, the Carolinas, and have taken 10 long-distance motorcycle trips in the past 30 years, and have never run out of fuel in any of my ICE vehicles. Gas stations are literally everywhere.

Any time anyone lets their ICE get low on fuel, it's because they are not paying attention; it has nothing to do with kWh storage capacity of the drivetrain or the availability of recharging stations, or the speed of adding range back into the drivetrain.

In the USA, ICE vehicles do not have range anxiety if you are not a dumbass.

And your last bit of BS... either get it fixed, or simply use the trip odometer. LOL
