I have no idea... I normally don't let it get that low but mine came on last week too on my way to the gas station. I know it's at least 5 miles from my house to the nearest gas station (I live in the country) so enough to at least make it somewhere

In my SS M6, I have about 40-45 miles left when it goes off, based on my calculations of what was left in the tank when I fill up.

WOW for what? 4 months my avatar was not political and now it is?

You should still have around a gallon and a half left in reserve when the light comes on.
