Ford Focus How Much Gas Do I Have Left When My Gas Indicator Goes Off?

by Joe on September 25, 2011

According to a highly respected automotive magazine, there is approximately 2.3 to 2.7 gallons of gas remaining when this light activates.

Research and driver reports state that depending on your driving habits, this translates to an average of 38 miles of driving left after the light comes on.

It is not recommended to drive your vehicle “dry”, for two reasons: one, there are always some impurities and debris collected in the bottom of the fuel tank after a while, and these can cause blockage or restriction in the fuel delivery system, and two, it can cause strain on the fuel pump by running it dry, and may in fact damage it or cause it to fail.

Best advice?  Fill up at a quarter of a tank, so you won’t have to test these figures for yourself!
