I get the low fuel warning to soon I think. Each time I get the warning I drive another forty or so miles. When I fill it up I can only get 15 gallons in it. It is a 2007 X Auto with 4.1 gears and 17 inch tires. It is supposed to have 18.5 gallon tank. Am I wrong on the tank size? I guess I will have to take a spare gas can with me to see. If the gauge is wrong, can it be reset?

Most vehicles allow about 40-50 miles more once the warning light comes on (in the US at least). I read somewhere that US consumers preferred it this way. My 2011 Wrangler's light comes on with about 2.5 gallons left, which is around 50 miles highway.

mine also comes on premature(right around 1/4 of a tank), but I usually don't let my tank get that low.....it's hard on your fuel pump.
