*

I"ve been trying to calculate how much gas mileage is available when the amber low fuel indicator comes on. I generally get between 330-350 miles on a full tank and the low fuel indicator pretty much comes on when I"m down to 2 bars. I"m trying to guess just how much I can continue driving at that point. A full tank has 20 bars and I think I usually get about 15-17 miles per bar, but that"s not always consistent or reliable. On a full tank I can get over 32 miles on the first bar alone. I just want to have a reasonably safe idea how much farther I can keep going when it comes on before filling up but it always makes me nervous so I just find the nearest gas station when it comes on because I"m afraid of running out.

Interesting but yeah, it"s not very consistent or accurate so I have no idea if I can go another 5 miles or another 30. In my old Civic the gauge was pretty reliable and I was pretty confident I could get at least 30 more miles when it came on but I just can"t pin down an accurate estimate with these digital gauges.

I routinely do 30+ after the light comes on, and my light also comes on shortly after two bars appear.I typically refuel at 1 - no bars.Even at "no bars", there is a reserve of fuel left, but it ain"t much.

Is is inconsistent. The car"s computer changes the guage readout based on your driving habits.I have already observed a sudden drop after spirited driving, then as sudden, bars return after more subdued driving.:wavey:
20 bars on the digital gauage / 13.2 gallons (including the reserve)so you have roughly 1.5 gallons per barwhich would give you about 25-35 miles per bar, give or take:wigglesmiley:
