Hopefully, I won't ever find out. I never let mine get below a quater of a tank because it is bad for the fuel pump.

Driving with low extremely low fuel level or running out of fuel could cause the engine to misfire, creating an excessive load on the three way catalytic converter.

I've taken it 10 miles on 1 bar with fuel light on. You can go another 30 miles on 1 bar, but that depends on milage and mods, so don't risk it. I like to take it down low before I get gas again. To me, its like draining your batteries completely before recharging.

B4 I moved to Chiocago my car never went lower than the 1/4th line. Now, I basically stay empty on gas.. Its sooo damn xpensive here. In Oklahoma I would put in $15 and be damn near close a full tank, and here $15 only gets me to the 1/4th line... cry cry cry

yeah my dad got in my car one day, and saw the gas on like 3-4 bars left, he flipped shit about how the fuel pump costs a shit load of money, and how he hates putting them in, because the truck drivers at his work drive on empty, and he is a mechanic so he has to put the gas pumps in, so i would recommend driving that low, lol
