Normally is 1.5 to 2 gal if no one has messed with the float device inside the tank. Not a good idea to run on empty tank though

That's right, if you run less than 1/4 tank you risk overheating the fuel pump, it uses the fuel as a coolant, anything less than a1/4 tank exposes the pump and greatly shortens its life.
