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?

ls coupe stick, it was stock minus an injen CAI it wasn't the mods it was the driving techniques, it was a highway trip and I was hypermilling. Google the term and you'll learn wonders.

My low fuel light comes on when theres a gallon and a half left. 13 gallon tank - fill up of 11.5 usually = comes out to 1.5 right? That's been pretty much my exact amount every time I fill. The farthest I went was putting 12.658 gallons in.

I'd have to actually go take mine out on a long trip on the freeway and see, but this cold weather, I'm seeing like 23-24 mpg...

I am pulling right at 480 a tank, at a little over 41 mpg, then again it is an XFE. I also drive for better mpg.
