You must have gotten one of the ones that doesn't need fuel... Just keep driving it and report back on how far below E you made it.. ;)

(it seems to be a thoroughly discussed issue here, folks are aware.. Once you hit E you have anywhere from 1 to 4 gallons left in the tank. It isn't good for your fuel pump to run it on empty though, IMO..)

Lol , yeah I wish it ran on e without putting gas in it !
Just wondering if it's a hard fix and the price of a fuel sensor or whatever the problem is

^^ This. I'm not sure about the '08's, but on newer models the fuel pump is inside the gas tank, and the gas flowing through it helps keep it cool. So running your tank dry could cause problems.

I don't now what it would take to fix it. In the meantime, you'll probably have to just use your trip meter, and reset it with every fill up.
