Question type: General

How many miles left after the low fuel light comes
on,  on 99 ford contour?

1 Answer

292,605

well usually the light comes on with 2-3 gallons left. But you don't want to be driving very far at that point. Not based on how far, but you don't want to burn out the fuel pump. The pump needs fluid to keep cool. So say 20 miles per gallon, 50 miles would be a good assumption.
