Mine does. I would imagine yours does to. I dont know for sure but i always thought that light came on when you roughly had 40-60 miles left but im not positive. I push mine to the limit all the time LOL I can go pretty far after the light

The check gage light comes on when the fuel level reaches a certain percentage, right about in the red on the gauge. Depends on how your drive and terrain but it is roughly 50 miles of usable fuel.

What year did they apply the low fuel light? I have a Check engine and a Fuel light.

Mine has CHECK GAGE which covers the fuel, temperature, oil, and voltage.

only the clusters with a tach will display a the "check gage" light when the fuel gets low. a non-tach cluster has no light for low fuel.
