Profuse apologies, but: You know I don't even know what I'm hoping to find.

i never let it go below 3/8ths. mostly becuase i drive like a madman and i dont want the pump sucking air and destroying itself.
that and the fact that the last quarter is not really a quarter. when the light comes on, i got exactly 1 gallon left.
ive had one car die from fuel pump problems becuase of chronic running on empty, i dont want that to happen a second time.

edit: the range on the 2011 yaris when the light is on is 35 miles max. on the 1.8 2009 versa its more like 90

I have never actually run out of gas before, but a few times I have run out of "bars" on my fuel tank gauge. Usually I try to get gas when I'm 5 bars or less. (Usually that's about 8-9 gallons used when it's at 5 bars. I have a 13.2 gallon tank.) The most I've ever had to put in was almost 12 gallons. I know you still have gas when there's "0 bars left" but the last thing I ever want to happen is run out of gas in the middle of nowhere!

There's a gas station at least every mile where I live. Sometimes closer. No reason to ever run out of gas.

Since I had the fuel pump replaced my "Low Fuel" light comes on when I have about 5 or 6 gallons of fuel left, {21 gallon tank}.
It used to be about three gallons.
I just go by mileage on the trip odometer.

When my car goes near empty it gives a warning and starts to count the remaining miles on the dash display.

.........I don't really want to go by those figures so I just go get gas right away

I generally don't worry about it until the gas light comes on.

Seriously? How can people even let themselves do that? It'd make me crazy not having at LEAST half a tank at all times.

My gas tank is always full because every time I see a gas station I stop to fill up and grab some gas station hot dogs to eat.

What do you drive that has a 13.2 gallon tank? My 350z has a 20 gallon tank.

2006 Honda Civic 4 Door. (The Owner's Manual says the car has a 13.2 gallon tank, which is where I got the number from.)
