Gas light

Gotta 2000 wrangler Sahara. Not sure but maybe a 19 gal tank? Anyways, how many miles or gallons do I have left after the gas light turns on?

It would depend on the size of the tires, engine, lift, stock / aftermarket items, etc... I wouldn't take it too far though - I get roughly 14MPG with mine because of all the above...

It's a 19 gallon tank, you should have 4 gallons left when the gas light comes on. So your range in miles when the light comes on depends on what mpg you get.

Most I've put in my tank was 18.7 gallons, that's how I know for sure it's a 19 gallon and I also know how far I can go when that light turns on before I absolutely need to go to the gas station

I deliberately ran mine out a couple of times to find out how far I'd get after the light comes on.
Just a bit over 40 miles in my case - I'm sure individual results will vary widely.
Carry a small gas can and find out what yours does.

Just a warning though - when mine ran out of gas, it was like turning off a light.
One second it's running, the next it's stopped - didn't get any coughs or splutters, it just stopped.
