LOW VALUE How many kilometers can I still drive if my car’s fuel gauge is on?

DRIVING Long journeys are often accompanied by a short stop at the gas station to refuel.

Whether it’s diesel or petrol, you might want to risk it when the red light starts to fill up your engine, but how far can you go?

The fuel gauge is a handy indicator on your dashboard that most of us are afraid to light up because it means our wallets are getting lighter.

Simply put, the fuel gauge lights up when your tank is almost empty, prompting you to fill up as soon as possible.

If your tank is very low, this light may even start flashing to warn you that your miles are counted.

Some of us ignore this so much that it is one of the most common problems rescue teams encounter when assisting motorists on the side of the road.

Sometimes the nearest gas station isn’t as close as you thought and your car stutters to a halt, leaving you stranded on a busy freeway.

In terms of how many miles you have left in the tank before you run into trouble, every car is different.

It depends on the vehicle’s fuel consumption, the speed of the car and the location.

If you drive calmly on an open road with no traffic lights, you’re more likely to get farther than on a bumpy road with lots of stops and starts.

According to user-generated data from car owners on the Tank On Empty website, most tank lights come on when the car has 30 to 50 miles of range remaining.

For example, drivers of a Volkswagen Golf report that their car has driven another 44 miles as soon as the fuel gauge lights up.

While a Ford Fiesta has about 37 miles of driving left after the warning light comes on, according to the model’s driver.

This is a bit about getting to know your car and testing the limits a little. See if the manual or any online forums give an estimate.

That being said, don’t push it to the point where you’re stranded without fuel.

Driving with a low fuel gauge is a bad idea for your safety, your vehicle, and your wallet.

If the fuel runs out, the car can break down, which means that the engine or other parts can be seriously damaged.

In terms of price, it’s always a good idea to shop around for fuel, as some supermarkets may offer their fuel cheaper than, say, motorway service stations.

If you drive with a low fuel gauge, you may be paying too much for gas when you could have saved by filling up earlier.

Even if you’ve been driving around on low fuel and then park, there’s no guarantee the car will have enough left to take you to a gas station when you come back.

When you’re running low on fuel, it’s better to take the time to refuel before you run out!

Most modern engines have a fuel gauge, and when they don’t, there is some kind of fuel gauge.

The light is usually located on the dashboard with the speedometer and other engine lights.

It has been standard since the 1980’s to fit a fuel gauge on newly built cars, so even if your car is older it is likely to have a gauge.

If you’re not sure where yours is, just check the manual or look online at the vehicle’s specs.

Repair shops can also help you locate the light, but you may be charged for this depending on how difficult it is to find.
