Even when that last flashing bar goes away, you still have another warning with the yellow flashing gas symbol in the center display. Of course by that point you are extremely low to the point of running out of gas. Don't recommend anyone try it and end up damaging their vehicle. I know some folks like to know absolutely where they stand when that are that low. Having that fusion is a good thing though.So I took the chance. Drove home, with Fuel light on and last bar blinking. Went the 50KM I had to travel to get to my local gas station(7cents/L cheaper than others around) Car only took 62L. So I had 3L to go before I was empty. So now I know I can g about 100KM/67Miles when the light comes on then last bar flashes.
You have to pull back on the rubber and old the nozzle outside the filler hole so it won't click off.I drove about 35 miles today with the last bar blinking. When I filled it up the pump clicked off at 15 gallons. I was using my rewards with 85 cents off a gallon so I wanted to put as much in as possible. I was able to get the max allowed using the rewards in, which is 20 gallons. Took me a while though it was hard to get the pump to go slow and it kept clicking off.
What is the distinct advantage to topping off you tank until it just can't take another drop? Are there no gas stations for 700 miles where you will be driving? Is it just one-up-mans-ship, some kind of contest to see who can pump in the most? All I see it doing is adding weight to the vehicle that will cut into your mpg.
Yes, it does take a while longer to fill up. I like being able to drive 2 weeks without filling up. Heck if Tesla had a less expensive model, I would get one. If KIA came out with a full electric vehicle with a similar range or better range than Tesla at half the price, fully loaded, I would be in line for one. All these years and we can't get solar cells to a state where they can be incorporated in a mid-sized sedan to power it for long drive. Or maybe they do but since they can't charge for the rays of the sun (no profit), it makes no sense to do it.
