If, let's say one knew one would have less than required 30 mins of fuel in the tanks on landing, and knowing that the only way of getting in ahead of the other priority aircraft would be to declare an emergency, which would automatically draw the eye of the regulator and result in the tanks being dipped, and prison time for you IF you, as both owner and PIC had done the above....

All hypothetical of course.
