miles until empty
 
in my 2011 jeep liberty renegade, when the low fuel light comes on the miles until empty just says "LOW FUEL".
my old 99 jeep grand cherokee used to give me exact miles until empty... all the way down to "0 MILES UNTIL EMPTY".
i miss that.

Hey,
I have an '04 WJ. I have always wondered how accurate that information is. Any comments?
I get nervous when it gets down to "14 miles until empty".

i've pushed my '99 to "0 MILES" a few times, and my liberty seems to go to "LOW FUEL" around 20 miles left.

on my Liberty and also on my commander when the fuel sign appear on the highway i have more r less 15-20 km to empty. so i have to keep looking the the fuel indicator to prevent it.... on my bmw x6 the low fuel sign appear at 50 km to empty....

When the light comes on, and it says '0 miles to empty' or 'low fuel' you have about 3 gallons of fuel left.

My gas light came on the other day while I was on my way to my ethanol free station, and I still had about 10-12 miles to go, and I filled up with 18.36 gallons. This is with our 21 gallon tank

yes but actually is so strange this..because if u dont keep looking the fuel indicator u risk to remain out of fuel...
they could set it to appear at 50 miles to empty...

They can't do it soley off miles to empty because everyones driving style is different, so they do it off gallons instead. If you know you have 3 gallons when the light comes on, then you can use your avg mpg based off your driving style and estimate how much longer you have before you run dry.

Its not good to get that low though. It will hurt your fuel pump because it uses the fuel in the tank to help with cooling. That and then it will start sucking up all the sludge at the bottome of the tank and could clog the filter.
