Good point if a bit paranoid!
But it's also good to know that the Jeep fuel light may be a bit dodgy. In all our cars, my wife and I have always waited for the fuel light to come on. A wise old mechanic advised me to do that. It flushes the gunk in the tank to the fuel filter which is changed regularly. Always filling the tank when still half full allows sludge to build up. Should you ever run low, all the sludge hits the fuel filter at once clogging it. Most people would be horrified to see what's lurking at the bottom of their fuel tanks.
