how much fuel should remain after low warning light comes on?

Asked by Oct 09, 2007 at 12:19 PM about the 2003 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just purchased a 2003 Civic LX (used) and suspect a fuel gauge trouble.  When the low fuel warning light came on it required only 35L to fill. Is this normal, considering the tank holds 50L?

This is definitely not normal. It could be your fuel guage, but more likely the fuel sending unit (inside the fuel tank). The fuel sending unit is what tells the fuel guage how much fuel is remaining in the fuel tank.
