    Thank God the problem is not serious. It was fuel starvation. Added around 2 more gallons of fuel to the 1 gallon from the other night.

    I really did pushed it to the limit this time that the engine stopped.

    Went to the gas station before going home from work.

    I was able to push to 9.021 gallons added to the ~3 gallons that was already in the tank.

    But I am still impressed that the 12v battery that originally came with my PiP is still in great condition.

    That's great news. A bad traction battery on a '14 PiP would be bad news for you and distressing news for the other PiP owners.

    A pretty good push since the tank only holds 10.6 gallons according to the brochure. :D

    The PiP keeps the 12V topped off while it's charging the traction battery from the wall, so I'd expect a PiP 12V battery to last longer than in other cars, but that's still pretty impressive.
