Anyone know how long you have with fuel light on?

Hi- just bought a 2000 Focus (ZETEC/auto)... my fuel light came on and I was wondering if anyone has a general idea of how long I had until I had to be really worried. I of course immediately fueled up...

mine comes on when ive used 10.8 gallons. figure out when yours comes on (fill up right after) and look up how big the fuel tank is on a zetec. take that gallon amount and multiply it by your avg MPG and there you go.

I think it comes on when there's about a gallon (perhaps 1.5 gallons) left.
Depending on your milage, anywhere between 20-45 miles.
