Gas light- how many gallons left?

How many gallons are left in the gas tank once the gas light comes on?

Ever car is a little different but for me it's almost always exactly 3 gallons (which is what Dodge says it's suposed to be). If it's flashing you have about 1 gallon.

same in my 04. Scan gauge reads 0 when it blinks, yet 12.5 when I "fill" with 11.5 gallons and the fuel gauge is full.

Wow, something to shoot for! I've never had the gas light blink at me before. When the light comes on to stay on I can fit 10-10.5 Gal. in the tank. With very little highway driving I get 250 miles per tank, around 25 mpg, never less than that.

I regularly drive ~40 miles after the light comes on. But when on the road I'm ALWAYS aware of how far away gas stations are. If I'm not sure I'll make sure to fill up early enough. If I'm in town I'll occasionally let it blink, but at that point I know I need to be within 5 miles of a gas station. And still, never put more than 11.6 gallons in, lol.

I always hit the trip if I ride the fuel light. I try not to go over 20 miles but based on my experience you have about 50 miles till you run out. The light starts blinking at the last .5 gal. If you have a walboro 255 this is a big no no.

I didnt think driving with the light was on was too safe, Wouldnt it make your fuel pump suck more air then fuel? Idk maybe thats a stupid comment but im sure ive heard that before...

yes, you can wear out the fuel pump more quickly when low, that's why I don't boost when below a 1/4 tank.

I read its a good way to reduce the pumps life. I never boost on a low tank. I never cared on the stock pump it seems to handle running low alot better then running at 350+hp. dont let a walboro run below 1/4 tank. It starts to make un friendly noises below half tank actually.
