This is how far you can really drive on empty



With gas prices soaring recently, perhaps you’re trying to space out your gas station visits. And that begs the question: How far can your vehicle really go on empty?

We found an answer for you! And there are a couple other things worth mentioning, too.

For starters, aside from the obvious problems running out of gas can entail — getting stranded on the side of a busy highway, somewhere miles from civilization or when it’s blazing hot or freezing cold and you have kids in the car — driving on empty can also do damage to your vehicle.

According to Your Mechanic, driving with a low amount of fuel in your gas tank can damage your fuel pump, due to any debris or contamination in the gas, which can just naturally settle at the bottom of the tank and be sent through the pump. If you do it once, it’s probably not that big of a deal, but it can be harmful if you’re doing it regularly.

OK, so on to the nitty gritty: How trusty is that gas gauge?

In short, not very.

When your vehicle offers an approximation for how many miles you have until empty, that’s based on the average mileage your vehicle has attained while previously on the road, so it may not be accurate to your current driving conditions, Your Mechanic reported.

And finally: How far can you actually drive on E?
