    My light came on yesterday while i was out in BFE...i was a little worried about it. I went probably another 20 miles or so before i made it to town. i really want to run all the way out just to see how far it will go.

    Yeah it's a 21 gallon tank. If you wanna find out how much fuel is left when the light comes on, this is what you do...

    When the light first comes on, fill up your tank all the way. Note how many gallons you put in the tank. Then subtract that number from 21. This will give you a pretty close estimate, as the tank is not really exactly 21.0 capacity.

    I agree with Tacomaman06's estimate. I usually fill up when the light comes on, and I consistently put in around 18gal.

    I agree, it's about a 3-4 gallon difference. It seems to be a bit more than in other cars I've owned which is a good thing.
