seriously you should never let your car get below a quarter tank.

you can't tell, each bar is significantly different.

I've tested the waters with my old GT & my newer GTS...

The first bar gets me around 64 to 80 miles, and then once that bar goes (which tricks me into thinking I'm getting great milage), then it starts dipping fast & I maybe get 15 miles per bar.

...and I have gone quite far down on the tank to where I had to be running on fumes. I got it not to the last notch, but BEYOND the last notch to NO NOTCHES! Man, I freak when that happens, but it has happened a few times when I think I could make it to work & back with 3 notches, but then they slowly disappear & I run out.

...when I fill it to the brim after I reach no notches, I usually come up with about a gallon left (13.5 to fill the tank, sometimes a little more).
...I don't normally push it like that, but sometimes I had to make it stretch before pay-day or just didn't have time to fill.

hey does it seem like your car is faster or has more power when you have a full tank? it may be me, but it seems like it does.

Yea yeaa...

I usually top off the gas tank, reset the trip odometer, and around 80 miles I lose a bar on the gas gauge, at half a tank on the bar gauge I'm around 225, but then the gas light comes on around 360-380 miles. Go figure...

Your car uses more gas when the windows are open and you're going faster than 45mph. It uses LESS gas if you are going above 45mph and using the AC.

I know, dude... I was being sarcastic (hense the weird face) based upon the few posts right above me being the same.

To most... it should have been obvious.
