When my Scangauge II shows 5% of remaining fuel the light will come on. Which is about an 11-ish gallon fill up.

I hit the warning light often, and never, ever gotten more than 11.9 gallons at the pump. Sometimes I drive 10 or 15 miles after the warning. Still never hit 12 gal.

I am at 3 gal when my light comes on.

That said, I rarely go below 1/8th of a tank.

i know this thread is old...but just wanted to chime in with my question on it...

on my 2005 zx4 2.0 the low fuel light comes on, but when i fill it im lucky if i can get 40 litres in it....so if the tank is 55 litres (or is it 50) that means i have 15 litres of go juice left?...which means instead of 500KM per tank, theoretically i could get 6-650km?

That seems like a pretty big cushion:)

Well 40liter is 10.5669gal (us) so its not far off. If i fill up right when the light comes on, its usually right around 11gal which would be closer to 42liter. If i am doing highway trips (ie, constant speed and constant mpg) i am comfortable going another 75miles with out worrying about running out of gas. I dont think i have ever actually put more than 13gal in the tank before either. Its pretty cushy

Also, assuming your tank is the same size as the US versions (which i dont see what they wouldnt be) its 53 liter = 14gal
