I think 16-17. So you can really go pretty far on the rest of the tank. COOL

Not only is it a bad idea to run empty but even running low is bad because all the shit in your tank gets sucked up clogging your fuel filters or worse. I would say if the light comes on find a gas station.

Incorrect the fuel pump always sucks from the bottom... fuel does cool the fuel pump, so low fuel levels dont cool the fuel pump as effectively and as we all know heat kills.

And dont trust on a certain amount of miles after the light, it will change when it comes on depending on how long you wait to fill up. I used to run it way down and get 19+ gallons on fillups and my light wouldnt come on till around i had 18 gal used. But not that i fill up sooner it comes on closer to 16-17 gal used. But if you use your avg mpg's you can really stretch out a tank of gas

I'm looking for a gas station once I get below 1/4 tank unless I know exactly where I'm planning to refuel.

I ran it to the light once to verify that it worked and when it came on, but other than that, I never run below 1/8 tank... 14-15 gallons is my typical refuel point.
