Well there's one sure fire way to find out, and that's to clocks your miles once the light comes on and check that number by your miles per gallon/litre.
But if you do that too many times you'll kill your fuel pump.(Not recommended)

When my light comes on the range on my obc says 54 miles. I don't think it will go that full distance though, the range gets a lil sketchy when it gets low. I tried driving 15 miles when the range said 24 and i ran out a few blocks away from the gas station. So.... Orange gas light comes on, fill it up as soon as you can but i'd say ur guaranteed a solid 30 miles if u drive conservatively
I've ran my car to --- Miles on my OBC probably about three times. I also still went about another 4-5 miles after that the other day. Not good of course, but I've been busy, didn't get around to getting gas, my bad. So, watch your range, not your gauge. Slightly off topic question... my car is listed as having a 17 gallon tank. Even the other day when I ran it to --- Miles, it only filled up to 15.8 gallons. So how many more miles did I really have to drive? I don't know, never ran out. But I assumed i only have a 16 gallon tank based on how much the cars fuels up when I run it that low. Any ideas?
