how far does go down? i get worried about a 1/4 of a tank.. by the looks of the gauge the 1/4 mark is about 1/8th.. just wondering if it goes past the E or not. i usually fill up 1/4 tank.. I've never had a light on come on..

There are about 2.3 gallons left in the tank once the light comes on.

The tank full capacity is 15.9 gallons. Realistically you should count that as 15 gallons. The light on my 02 S model comes on when about 13.8-14.0 gallons have been used from a full tank. So on my car I know that I have at least another gallon left in the car before I'm close to being empty. On my 01 L I was once able to pump 15.4 gallons into it just after it started to cough like it was about to run out.

My 98 doesn't have a fuel light! I don't know why, but does anyone have a answer for that?
