hi did someone know how much gas left in the tank when the indicator show empty or miles that i can drive ?>: i look in my owner book and find nothing ? thanks a lot>
Exactly.Running it empty can destroy your fuel pump, never ever do this
I've always followed that rule as well, I'm 51 years old and never ever run out of gas in my life. >Exactly.
Air gets in the system as bubbles and it creates these try points which is bad for the pump since gasoline acts as lubrication. At least that's what I heard from a mechanic.
My rule of thumb is to never let it run below a 1/4 tank.
That's still not bad since a lot of people wait till the gas light comes on and keep going for 10-15 miles more, really pushing it which is a horrible thing to do. Even just under 1/4 you have a while to go, it's just a really safe threshold.Sometimes I go under 1/4 but by a small margin, never enough to hit the E. The thought of getting stuck somewhere scares me.
