I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler 5 speed manual. Does anyone know how far it runs once the fuel light comes on?

You have 3 gallons left when it comes on ish. So say you get the crappyest gas mileage I have heard on a jeep for safety 11mpg you got 33 miles at least. But best to keep the level high and let gravity help out that fuel pump and keep it from going dry.

I have an 04 TJ and the Owners Manual says that when the Gas Light comes on, there is 2 US Gallons left as a reserve.

I have a 2000
Sahara with a 19 gallon tank. Owners manual says the same thing. I have never gotten 17 gallons into it though. Even with the light on I get close to 16 at the most leaving 3 or more still in the tank.

I deliberately ran mine out twice to check and got almost 40 miles each time.
That was just running around town - not driving with a prevailing headwind/tailwind which would decrease/increase the result.
