Does E really stand for empty?

Of course the light doesn't mean that the tank is going to leave you stranded on the side of the road. But it does mean you better get to the gas station before it's too late. Although, just how many miles do you have to get to the gas station?

It's obviously different from car to car but who really knows? Well the good people at yourmechnic.com came out with a list of the top 50 most popular cars in America (in 2015) and made a list that lets you know how many miles you have left after the low fuel light comes on.

Yes, it says it in miles. I know here in the Midwest we gage how long distance is by how long it will take to get there. "How long does it take to there?" "Oh, an hour and a half." But this list lets you know how many miles you have to get to a gas pump.

Do not let your gas run out. Not only will you be stranded on the side of the road, it's also terrible for your catalytic converter.
