    It does vary but I get at least 80km after the first warning chime though I've never run till dry as I don't want to suck up crap and stuff the fuel pump. When you fill it up, take a note of how many litres it took to fill and subtract that from the tank capacity - then you'll know how many litres left. Mine will take about 50 litres when the chime sounds - tank holds 59 litres (sedan not wagon). Just remember this can vary from car to car.

    i always play safe and try to re-fuel within 20km when i get a chime, but i have no idea how long mine would go, takes ages for it to chime in the first place

    Actually the other day I filled 63ltrs (first time that much) of fuel from Woolworths Caltex, then realised I had a 63ltr tank and the gauge was showing just above the red line before I filled up. Normally I put 57ltrs.

    read in my owners manual that the chime will sound when there is 8 litres left in the tank, so that will give you approx 80kms (depending on how you drive of course)
