The pilot of the Cessna 150F stated that he could not remember the exact date he last fueled his airplane, but recalled that it was completely fueled. He then flew about 2 hours during two uneventful flights. The airplane was not refueled and the pilot departed on the planned 1 hour 19 minute accident flight. The flight took longer than expected due to a headwind and the pilot also deviated over some clouds. During a cruise descent to the destination airport, the engine experienced a total loss of power and the pilot performed a forced landing to a road, about 4 miles south of the destination airport. During the landing, the left wing struck trees, resulting in substantial damage. The pilot added that the accident was "100 percent fuel exhaustion."
