Yes in most cars nowadays there's a 1-2 gallon reserve when the empty light is illuminated. I think it's more of distance left to be traveled, than amount of fuel left.mofogasm said:I am only able to pump 15 gallons or so into my gas tank but the specs on the car say taht the gas tank is over 17 gallons. Does that mean that when my range gauge goes down to 0 that i still actually have 2 full gallons left in the tank?
is that all highway miles?mofogasm said:I've had this car for about 3 weeks and i commute 30 miles each way to work. I average about 29mpg. Whenever i pump gas it only pumps a little over 15 gallons and i get about 410 miles per tank. I am sure you can squeeze more out of the tank because i haven't let it run to the point where it is running on vapors yet.
