usually with 2.0-2.5 cars when the gas light goes on you have about 5-15 miles left on it, i drove a huge chevy silverado on E, and it was fine with the gas light on for about 8 miles.... and thats a 5.7L motor

I've run my '97 2.2L flat out of gas once, but a gas light never came on, even though the car was pretty new at the time. You just have to remember to get gas when the gauge is very close to "E".

I find it strange that the car does not have a gas light. I pushed the limit once and the car started to shutter like it was slurping so I hurried to the gas station. This is new to me; I've never had a car without a gas indicator.

Check your fuel filter, maybe it's not getting enough gas, you can also look at the floater to see if it's stuck, but other than that it could be mostly electrical..... Or just didn't come with one.... Which seems strange

My 1995 Impreza does not have a light. The manual says when the needle is on E it is empty.

my 93 legacy has one, I've just never let it come on in my 6 years owning it, only reason I know it has one is cause my parents owned it from 92-2006 and they let it come on.

come to think of it my 98 forester has one and my 02 forester does too, maybe your bulb's just burnt out.

starts then dies after 5 seconds
