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.

I have 99 and its 16ish. Its got like a 10 gallon reserve lol. Just kidding. I let it go pretty far after that an even past the line. But I try not to do it a lot. I ran out once and dont want to do it again

Hell yeah thanks for all the help

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 have the build sheet on my 2000 it is 19 gal....

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.
