I just realized that I sent this offlist. On the off chance that anyone
else is interested here are the results of my low-fuel light test.
-------- Original Message --------
Filled the tank on the way home last night.
Miles = 230.5
Fuel = 4.976 US Gal
MPG = 46.22
According to 3 or 4 resources on the web the capacity of the tank is
listed at 5.6 Gal. So by my math, assuming that I would get the same MPG
for the last .6 Gal of tank and that the tank can be run dry, I could
have gone another ~27 miles. I can tell you that I wouldn't have felt
good about it though :). And for the 5 or so tanks that I've run through
recently (while paying attention) the light has pretty consistently come
on around ~220 miles and my mileage has been a steady 45/46.
