    Fuel Gauge and Low Range Warning

    Is it just me or do you all notice that when driving long distances or on the highway, the fuel needle hardly moves for the first 100 miles or so and then seriously starts dropping after the 1/2 tank mark. It seems that it takes a lot of miles to get from FULL to 3/4, but only about 40 miles to get from 1/4 to EMPTY. And when the first "ding" on the Low Range Warning is heard, how many more miles do I have to EMPTY? Is it 50? And is there a second warning. I have never waited for the second warning if there is one but would like to know.

    Yes, there is another warning. The "Low Range" message will change to one that says "Get gas immediately" or something to that effect. I don't know the exact milage figures for these warnings, but I think the Low Range message comes on at about 40 miles left and the next one at about 15 miles left.
