I drove probably 2 miles and filled up. The tank took 14.9 gallons meaning I had 4.1 gallons left. I thought you guys (gals)might be interested if you ever saw the low fuel warning, how may gallons were still left in the tank about 2 miles after the warning appeared. Glad I could be of service.
It really depends on the DIC. I know there's AT LEAST ~50 miles left when that light comes on.
However, there's a second warning system that kicks-in when the fuel level approaches empty (2 gallons? idk).
I had both kick in when Sandy hit and I had to travel from northeast NJ all the way to Pennsylvania to get gas with less than 1/4 tank
