Default Does the Check Gage light apply to low fuel?

I've heard that it does but my truck is almost on E now and it hasn't come on yet

Yes that light should come on. When I first bought my ranger that light came on and it scared me because I thought I had a problem, but it was just low on gas.

I've seen that set up on Fords before, my mom's old '93 Cougar was like that as well, But I just wanted to make sure.

Ford wasn't smart enough to make separate indicators

I stand corrected.

They were smart enough to put it on some cars

Probably the coolest dash in a car I ever had was my 1990 Cougar with the FULL digital clusters, which oddly, were standard for 89's & 90's If something was wrong the indicator for that particular gauge would flash and beep every few seconds, I guess they were making up for a lack of a 5.0, lol.

eh, more like 2.5 gallons I think. I get about 40 miles before I'm in unmetered reserves.
