Default How much gas is in the tank when light goes on?

Just wondering what the low fuel lights activation level! How much gas is in the tank when light goes on? My Cherokees light went on at four gallons.

There are different size tanks all depends on the cab configuration. Mine pops on when I have 4 gallons left.

if you don't have a tach, you don't have the fuel light.

yep. reg cabs have a smaller tank.

mine comes on with about 3 left. the owners manual says i should have 16.5 gallon tank. i have pulled it in to the station 2 or 3 times sputtering. dropped 18.75 gallons each time. so i guess ford gives a little extra in reserve.

My tank is 18 gallons and when the light comes on it has 2 gallons. You can run it way past the last marker on the fuel guage.

----------

My old Tahoe was a gas whore. It had a 30 gallon tank and got 10 -11 mpg, but in it's defense it had real high miles. I just couldn't afford to crank it. That 350 would suck down gas. Thats why I love my ranger, because it literally gets 2x the mpg.
