Yes, if not more. I have gone 55 miles with the gas light on constantly.

Do you not let your gas tank run close to E, and then fill up a full tank? Just curious, because some people don't let it get that near empty.

actually brian, my gauge is off. i'll fill up and drive about 1 mile, and it reads 1/2 tanks. at about 10 miles im back on Echo.

sorry about the 13Gal...thought i read it somewhere.
the most i ever fill up is about 6 gallons at a time.

My fuel light comes on with about 4 gallons left (14 used up). I got 375 miles on a tank once, with the light illuminating at about 300 miles. I was in a rural part of North Dakota at 2 am, and they don't have gas stations open all night, nor pay at the pump.

One rule of thumb used for when the gas light comes on is when you have about 1/8 of a tank of gas left.

For 18 gallons, that makes it about 2.25 gallons, which seemed to coincide with the way my car works (and from what Shaun said about 2 gallons left in reserve).
