fuel light comes on how many miles left?

New to this site, so hello to all. I have a Toyota Aygo 2011 and my fuel light comes on ans I was wondering f anyone knew how many miles, roughly, were left before I ran out of petrol. I don't really want to risk going too far without filling up and having to push it to the nearest garage.
Thanks Nigel

It should state in the owners manual. Usually for a small car there's at least a gallon, so 50 ish miles in your car. Sometimes there's more, and sometimes less so don't risk it too far!

On my Ford Escape, the light comes on at 50 miles to Empty, but I can usually go at least 40 miles past "DTE=0" so I assume there's a little more than a gallon left when the dash display reads DTE 0.

At about 45 miles, a little less than 1 gallon (USA) ((my 2014 Focus - YMMV))
