    Anyone know how many gallons of gas are left after the gas light comes on?

    Our tanks hold about 14.5 gallons, yes? The light seems to come on around 1/8 to 1/10 tank? So when the light comes on, there-s most likely anywhere from 1.5 to 2 gallons of gas left. I think.

    The reserve light comes on when there is about 1.1 gals. left in the tank, (at least mine always does) if you are on level ground. After my first oil change I got 408 miles when my light came on...thats 30.4 mpg. In combined driving I get 26 mph. At that figure you have about 28 miles on the reserve. When my needle is ALL the way down past the -R- I am bone dry. My gage seems to be metered farily presise. I have 5500+ miles on mine and it has been very consistant.

    That-s strange, I-ve never put more than 12.5 gallons in on fill up and I always drive 10-15 miles after the light comes on.

    that sounds about right inlikeflint. if you normally drive around 10-15 miles after the light comes on and fill up 12.5 that means you had about 1-1.5 gallons left.

    Not really, If we have a 14.5 gallon tank and I avg 25mpg. I drive .5 gallon before I fill-up, then that light comes on @ 2.5 gallons approx.

    I think it-s 3 gallons. I-ve had that needle pointing almost straight down. When I filled up, I only put in 13.5 gallons.
