The other day I stretched it out a bit to get to my favorite gas station that sells non-ethanol gas. I was about a 1/4 mile away from the station and my display said 7 miles to empty. My pedal went dead and my car died. Very embarrassing. I won't be going that low ever again.

In short: don't trust the Distance To Empty gauge unless you like to walk.
