I realized today that I've never seen the "low fuel" flight on the instrument panel of my VX lit up. This led me to ask, does it even have one? If it does, about how much fuel is left when it is illuminated?
I rarely let my fuel gauge go below 1/4 tank-that is usually about 350 miles on the trip odometer. Reset your trip odometer at every gas fill up; once you have a good handle on what kind of mileage you're getting (miles on trip odo divided by gallons added at fill up=mpg), you'll know when to refill. My VX averages around 46 mpg-this means I still have at least 2 gallons (90 miles +) left in the tank when I refill. If you know how your vehicle performs, a low fuel light is really unnecessary.
