Hotel heiress Paris Hilton gave passers-by an extended peak at her luxurious $216,000 (GBP120,000) car in Los Angeles at the weekend (23/24OCT04) - because she ran out of fuel on the road.

The reality TV beauty's plush Bentley came to a sudden halt during a Beverly Hills shopping trip, and Hilton - who had neglected to fill the car with petrol - had to seek the pushing powers of her skateboarder friend CHAD MUSKA and members of the public.

Fortunately, while Hilton sat steering the vehicle, a line of men pushing at the rear managed to guide her to a nearby garage.
