Is my guage reading right? Is there actually almost 10 litres (2 1/2 gallons) left with that light on? That seems like a lot of fuel left for reserve.
Hi Darth_Focus,

Your vehicle has a 46.9 L / 12.4 gallon fuel tank. Low fuel warnings are displayed in the message center followed by a chime when the distance to empty value reaches 75 miles (120 km). If you are concerned about your vehicle's fuel economy, I'd advise that you make an appointment at your dealership so they can inspect and diagnose.

Feel free to reach out to me via PM if you have other questions.
