Use Caution if Using Low Fuel Light to Determine Refueling
I would say 1 out of 10 fill ups I allow the low fuel light to come on before filling up. Only once have I gotten to the point where the DTE meter switched to just a "Low Fuel" warning.
Neither of these scenarios were the case today. I knew I was low on fuel but no low fuel light was on. At noon I decided to make the ~1mi drive to lunch. From the lunch place I would then drive across the street to gas up.
Got in the Jeep after lunch, started it up and the low fuel light came on immediately followed by the textual low fuel warning. Then the Jeep died.
Zero warning that I was that low on gas. Yes, I know some of you will say you should never let the Jeep get to the point of the low fuel light. The light is there for a reason and it only gave me a 15 second warning; not a 30-50mi warning like it should have.
Anyways, just a warning that we might need to give the WK2 low fuel light a little bit more weight when figuring out how far we have.
First time ever running out of gas. Embarrassing.
