You weren't quite there yet ! Watch your *Miles To Empty* reading ! The warning comes on at about 30-40 to empty ! I have even had the *red zone* on the gas gauge literally disappear ! I think the most I have filled up with was 15.8 gals ! I have gone past the *0-miles to empty* reading ! Not something I would suggest to anyone to mess around with , unless you know exactly how far you are to the next filling station is ! But I always like to know what the limits of my vehicle are , concerning Fuel and readings !While on a recent road trip I noticed the gas gauge was a few hairs from being in the red zone, but did not have any low fuel warming. When I gassed up it took 14.6 gallons. Should I have it checked to see if it is working?
got my 1st low fuel warning today :| with 51 miles to goFrom months of watching I believe the "low fuel warning" comes on at 28-31 miles to empty. A little more specific than GR but cut him some slack
All cars have it set up that you will usually have 1 gallon of fuel or more when it says 0 to empty so unless you've run it down to 0 and continue to drive it for miles on end you shouldn't run out... but like GR said, I would not do this as it can cause mechanical issues with the fuel pump etc.
