Living out of a car w/out preparation

Okay, now, I know y'all think i'm crazy (you're not wrong), but, I need some advice on how to live out of my car for the next couple of weeks.

I can't go home, so it'll just be school and work. I only have half a tank of gas, and no money to buy any more gas or food.
The only food I have in my car is a 12 pack of PopTarts, a cup of pudding, and a banana.
I also have a 4G LTE tablet and a laptop, and the school has free wifi and plenty of charging ports.
I only have 2 CDs, Neil Young/Crazy Horse - Live Rust, and Echoes - The Best of Pink Floyd
Gas around here is about $2.97, and the Sheetz beside the school sells E85 for $2.50.
I only have 3 pennies, a few Canadian coins, and about $5 on my debit card.
It's about 30 min to/from work and school.

Oh, and my car is a red 2000 Taurus SE SVG 6 seat sedan with premium sound, a FFV Vulcan, a misfire in cylinder 2, and a half gallon or more of spare 50/50 mix coolant in the back seat

Basically, I need some tips on how to survive these next 2 weeks.

And how should I sleep? In the drivers seat? In the back seat? in the trunk? on the roof?

Most problems are the result of a loose nut connecting the steering wheel to the pedals.

Well, look on the bright side, if you could only have two CDs you could do worse than Neil Young and Pink Floyd.

Haha, I guess!

Alas, I've just remembered one more detail....my dad technically owns the car, so he could report it as stolen.
And with a misfiring engine, outrunning the cops might not be an option.
