Miles to empty

Just had to fill up for the 2nd time with gas since getting my car. I noticed the miles to empty disappeared once it got under 30 miles and I couldn’t find it again. It just said fuel level low. Am I missing something??

No, when it gets below 30/40 it will no longer say how many miles you have. It's just time to stop for gas.

Ok thanks! Wish it would tell you all the way down to 0.

I wouldn’t run your car that low regularly. It’s hard on the fuel pump.

He's right, at that point you have probably about a gallon or two of gas in the tank and as you drive the fuel pump sucks air which is not good. Besides all the crap settles to the bottom of the tank also and you really don't need the pump to work on that. Remember, it calculates the miles to empty based on the your recent consumption so the same number of gallons might read different whether you're idling or driving in stop and go or one the highway. It's a long walk with a fuel gas if anyone even has one anymore.

Coming from someone who's ran multiple vehicles on fumes and 0 miles to empty be nice to your fuel pump

Yeah, you are missing something. Common sense!

Just a warning.. the red gas tank symbol right? The range (even when it said you have 30 miles) is an estimate based off recent mileage and driving habits... once you see the low fuel pop up, you should go sooner than later.

if you get the engine ecu or fuel pump update (not sure which one), it will go down to 20 miles per gallon. it might be insturment cluster update too. that was always my complaint before was it went to the car symbol too early.

It means that you are in the reserve portion of the tank.
