Low Fuel Light

I wanted to start a poll based on responses from these two threads :

Drove 2000 RPMs on the highway for 1 hour

What is your average MPG

So, how many miles can you usually go before your low fuel light comes on ?

Thanks,

Nick

I don't think I've ever let my level get that low in this car. But in my TL, I push the limits so far that I feel like Kramer.

240 miles on a tank of gas is a record for me... I drive about 100 miles per week and need to fill the tank every 2 weeks. I get between 220 to 240 miles to the tank with super.

I don't usually pay atention to how many miles before I fill, but I know I can make it from Escondido to Las Vegas on one tank 300 miles and that's not at 65mph

I think you need be a little more specific. Because driving 100% highway and driving 100% city is going to give you two very different results.
For example, most of my driving is 70/30 city/high and I get about 300 miles on a tank, but when it is 50/50 I get 270 miles. Plus, you have to consider whether it's a 2.5L a 3.2L, etc.
