They say there are two types of people when it comes to the moment the car fuel light comes on.
You're either the "panicker" who is frantically looking for the nearest petrol station or, you're a "gambler," the type of person that thinks "I know my car, we can make it."
Seeing the fuel light come on can leave you feeling worried or nervous as your car could cut out at any minute. Of course, you should try and make sure that the fuel needle never reaches the empty level but sometimes it can be unavoidable.
Anyone that has ‘ran out of fuel’ when the light comes on will know that the car doesn’t immediately breakdown as there is a little reserve.
Your car's warning light will illuminate when there's around less than 10% of fuel left in the tank
How many miles can you drive when the fuel warning lights comes on?
According to a research it has revealed that in an emergency, you’d actually be able to drive around 50 miles, before running out of petrol.
Generally speaking, you will be able to drive between 30 and 50 (0r more) miles even after the light comes on. Which means that even if the gas light comes on, it may not be time to panic yet.
