    I have an ’06 and I’ve always wondered how much gas is left in the tank when my low gas light comes up on the dash.

    So far, I’ve never been able to add more than 17.5 gallons of gas on a fill-up. And I know the spec manuals state that our tanks are supposed to hold up to 20 gallons.

    But has anyone ever really tested that out and ran out of gas entirely?

    I’m just wondering how paranoid I should be once that light goes on.

    TIA

    I found that have another 30+ miles highway driven before really is dry completely in gas..sure never you will use the 20 gallons in one shot..so is good idea to fill up before that happens..I all times fill up at 1/4+ tank.

    18 gallons is the most that mine has taken to fill. This is after driving at least 30 miles with the gas light on. I think it comes on with 3-4 gallons left. On the highway, that is good for about 75 miles.
