I really try not to find out. I have only driven about 20 more miles after the light comes on and I was sweating the entire time.

03 TJ without enough stuff on it. Is there really enough things ever done to a Jeep?

Rough estimate is 19 minus the amount you put in to fill it back up.

The only way to know for sure is to get a 5 gal can full to carry along and run it until it quits one time.

Almost exactly 2 gal. I have a 06 Rubicon with lower gearing and i have had to go 35 miles once with the light on, so the guy that went 20 miles still had some to go.

you never really wanna run it untill its completly empty. If you vehicle happens to have quite a few miles on it, the in take pump might suck up some of the crud in the tank and fry. Did it to my dad's Comanchee, thats one $120 lesson learned.
