Usually there's a gallon or two left in the tank. You either have a 29 or 38 gallon fuel tank. Next time the warning light comes on, take out a loan and fill it up. See how many gallons it take and subtract it from the capacity.

If the fuel pump is on the gas tank, it's not a good idea to drive until the low fuel indicator comes on, The sediment on the gas tank could clog & damage the fuel pump.

I should have written "IN the fuel tank" not ON the fuel tank.

The first poster is right. The light will normally come on when you've got about 2 or 3 gallons left in the tank. Assuming you get 20MPG forty miles is a good rule of thum. HTH. -Jim
