I have experienced it. So have I. Or at least I've simulated it. With some decent room around me on a freeway, I have floored the accelerator then started pressing the brake. It only took two presses to completely drain the vacuum reservoir in my car. And the second press wasn't fully boosted. I'd always been taught there are two or three presses in that situation. It was more like one and a half.For those who learned to deal with brake failure by pumping the brake pedal, that's the last thing you want to do with a loss of vacuum assist. In an unintended acceleration situation, I agree with your assessment - you've got one big brake press. Use it wisely.--Peter
