Check your owners manual but I would say that based on other cars I own, maybe one to two gallons which would mean maybe 20-30 miles. Don't push your luck as "Your Mileage May Vary"!

Exactly! You can also burn out the fuel pump if you run completely out of gas. The gasoline cools and lubricates the fuel pump motor. HTH. -Jim
