I've never actually run out of gas, but I seem to remember going about 100 miles once with the light on. I actually looked up the specs on how much gas is left when the light comes on, but I can't remember it off hand.

I did see '---' displayed with computer set to 'miles-to-empty'.
Was lucky enough not to run out of gas though; when this was happening there was a gas station within couple of hundreds yards. I would say before lights comes on and '---' displayed is about 50-60 mi. If anybody is tempted to verify numbers please make sure you have full gas can in your trunk. Make sure it is closed tightly, atherwise you're going to stinch YOUR bimmer.

OK....Ran out of gas...twice! I know dumb ass.....In my defense I drive a ton of miles......so my chances of not paying attention are higher....It does go to -- when really empty. What alerted me to low fuel stautus on both occasions was almost stalling exiting the highway turning right.....but at this point i did not make it to the station...third time I was lucky and did make it.
