The fuel light is an idiot light for idiots who can't read a fuel gauge. There is no set time or distance. Go get gas.

There is no set distance as mentioned, seems to be around 40 miles remaining depending on conditions. :dunno:

When mine comes on, it takes about 23 gals to fill the tank. 26 gal tank, 3 gals left means about 40 - 60 miles if it is possible to suck it flat empty.

When the light comes on, look at the DIC to see how many "estimated" miles are left.

20-30 miles, any more and chances are you'll be pulled off on the side of the road...

Did you happen to look through the owners manual? I know on a previous vehicle that the tank capacity was listed as well as the reserve fuel tank capacity. I think 2-3 gallons is somewhat normal.

And also read the recent post about running the tank too low. Keep it above 1/4 unless you like changing fuel pumps.

If your truck has the DIC, there is an option to see how many miles are left in the tank. :dunno:

 

It's not real accurate, but just as accurate as asking the fools on here! :M16:

Exactly. Most people don't realize that the fuel in the tank helps keep the pump cool.
