Here’s how far you can drive after your fuel light comes on

We all know someone who likes to take a chance when the low fuel warning light comes on in their vehicle.

You are driving on the freeway, listening to music, when suddenly you hear the beep. You look at your dashboard and see that your low fuel warning light has just come on. At this point, you begin to wonder how far you can drive before your vehicle runs out of gas. It’s happened to all of us. I know people who drive with this light on more times than they probably should. However, do you know exactly how far you can go before you run out of gas?

The last thing you want is to run out of gas on a freeway or a busy highway. Obviously, you always want to make sure you have enough gasoline in your vehicle to get you where you’re going, but we all know you’re going to have those “low fuel” times. You might be tempted to rely on the empty kilometers display that newer vehicles have equipped on the dashboard. However, the auto repair site, Your Mechanic says you can’t always trust this number alone. let’s say you can’t rely on that number alone, as it’s based on your average gas mileage over time, but you won’t always be in average driving conditions.
