Oh, I’ve had a few of them.

1986 Civic Hatchback: ran it out of fuel - a busted fuel gauge and a jammed odometer made for some interesting times. Was on the way home from a night shift, and had a bottle of 99% isopropanol with me. Poured it into the tank and drove it to the next gas station (ran...interestingly, but it ran).

Same car: split upper radiator hose. Bodged it together with duct tape and rope, filled it full of water from a ditch.
