How Many Miles Did You Go on One Tank?

Lately, I could only go 300 miles on one tank before the low fuel light showed up. Seems like the "Low Fuel" will pop up at around 1/8th and 40 miles left of fuel in the tank. I don't drive anymore when then light comes on because i don't really know how much fuel i really have after the light comes on. Is this right?
How far can you go one tank?

Which one are you talking about? The "FUEL RANGE LOW" or the "LOW FUEL?"
