The anxiety felt by one when they think that there isn't enough fuel in their gas tank to complete a trip.
Tankxiety is known to be accompanied by anger and a sense of false security after thinking that one is safe. (See example.)
The terminology comes from a portmanteau of the words "Tank" and Anxiety."
