The light come on as soon as you have 1.8 gallons left. Simply multiply 1.8 by whatever mpg you"re getting and also that"s how far you have the right to actually go once the low fuel indicator comes on.

Perhaps one method to discover out would certainly be come drive until it get zero, then to fill the tank come determine just how much fuel to be still left (in various other words, if the tank hold 12.4 gallons, and you put 11.8 in, you had actually .6 remaining. Presume all the fuel is usable (and suspect that possibly running it under to totally empty doesn’t harm the fuel system in part way), that would certainly be may be be an excellent for one more 20 miles or so.

I have actually only had my EX-T for over a year, and also from my experience I think it provides the alert as soon as it reaches the last gallon or so. However you will an alert that on complete tank the variety value will certainly slightly vary based on ur driving style, coz ur mpg is mostly how ur steering (city/highway stop and also go etc) I would say, unless ur getting stuck in traffic and pushing ur ac come the borders u can conveniently cover 20+ mile (with 3-4miles slack for refueling).... An excellent luck

So...knowing the actual amount of fuel left when the light comes on is perfect. Exciting though that v this tank, I averaged a small over 35mpg, yet using this, the indicator should have actually then told me I have actually 63 mile left. I guess I"ll wait till the light come on again and also run the math and also see if it"s much off again.BTW....1.8 gallons left appears high come me based on previous cars. Is this worth something the is discovered in the car"s hand-operated or online? Guessing it is since it"s together a particular value.
