Here or off topic? How much gas is left when 'low gas' is lit.

Hi, pretty much all is in the title. This is so simple it may have needed to go to Off Topic.

When the "low gas" light comes on, how much gas is left in a 2010 G6?

_Approximately_ how far can you go depending on your mileage, etc?


Ya'd think the amount would be in the manual.

Fill a jerry jug with gas, take it with you and when the light comes on drive it until it runs out of gas.
I'm willing to bet it varies from vehicle to vehicle so a definitive answer can't be given.

Better yet don't let your car run that low

Generally speaking, it seems the average for all cars is "1 - 2 gallons"

I know it's at least a gallon; I've driven 20 miles with a light (the average MPG on my 2007). This site has a lot of claims of ~35 miles, which would be 1.5 gallons.

When my fuel light comes on, I fill up. It takes anywhere from 12-14 gallons
depending on my mileage at the time. With a 16 gallon tank, that means there
are 2-4 gallons left.
