when the needle hits E you have about 1 gallon left before it starts sputtering.

those things are set up about 20 miles off... BTW... so you don't run out...

Also, I drive 75 and 55 mph home so i don't have much city driving and its 13 miles... Think i can make it there and back in the morning?

I was thinking in the manual it says the light comes on with 2 gallons left. I dont know though have never had my light come on. Heard its bad for your fuel tank to run out.

My light came on the highway doin 80 once, 2 miles b4 the exit so I slowed down to 55 and right before the offramp I sped up to 80 and threw it neutral and coasted down the offramp, thru a rotary nd off the rotary exit. Drove another city mile and the light turned off. Didn't turn on again, fueled up 5 miles later.

When the light goes on you have 2 gallons left exactly. For me, thats about 66 miles if I'm on the freeway of 50 in the city.

Yea usually I can get anywhere from 40-50 miles. I always run the tank to the end. Sometimes the needle is below the E line, that's how low I have run it.
