can the distance to empty be adjusted for the low fuel light on a 2013 explorer
No, usually it is set for 2-3 gallons. I recommend adding fuel before the light comes on, refuel at 1/4 tank to keep the fuel pump cool with gasoline.
Your vehicle is new, so there should not be a problem in this regard, but try to fill up at a quarter tank or little lower. As the years go by crud will accumulate in the tank. Don't risk sucking stuff into the fuel system.
