Low Fuel Light

I have a 2007 ZX4 and have a quick question...

How many gallons are left in the tank when the low fuel light comes on?

I checked my owners manual but found nothing.

Re: Low Fuel Light

Generally it's 1/6 total capacity. Each vehicle is different, even models that are the same. Best way to find out if you want to drive it til it runs on fumes is fill it up as soon as the light comes on, then subtract what you put in the tank from the total capacity, and you'll have your answer. The general rule that I've found from my vehicles (one dodge, one ford and one GM) is that a 50L tank size equals out to about 7L of reserve capacity when the light comes on. Keep in mind that hilly terrain won't give you an accurate reading on this.

My low fuel light came on in my 2007 ST the other night...and the gas gauge was sitting on E....I made it another 20 miles to the gas station....but was a little nervous seeing the gauge that low the whole trip....
