I'm still on my first tank right now, half of tank runs 210KM (city 70%, hwy 30%, winter gas), just wondering how much longer I can drive once the gas light up. THX.
I agree. In addition, the fuel pump motor is cooled by the fuel, so running it low can cause it to run hot & possibly cause it to fail or shorten its life. :frown:If you do run out, you risk long term damage to the fuel pump. Also, less fuel in the tank means more room for condensation. Why risk it?
For me and the driving I do, I try to keep the tank at least 1/2 full. On some of my drives reputable gas stations are over 100 kms apart.
A common question here. So common that's it's actively being discussed at this very moment in another thread. One that you started it would appear. So I've merged your new thread with the already existing one. We like to keep things tidy.I'm a new owner, just wondering if "Re-Fuel" light shows up at this much left?
so a tank only runs 444km = 275mi?Make a note of how much gas your car takes and where the the needle sits on the gauge when the light comes on. By using the listed tank capacity and your mileage you can estimate pretty closely as to what you have left in the tank when the light comes on.
