The low fuel light seems to come on anywhere between the 1/4 mark and the 'E' mark.

More often than not, BIG ROOMY CAR. Only if traveling with one other person, who could drive and the other stretch out in back to rest... would I go with the Cramped Econo Car. All other options... BIG CAR...

Yes, for the most part...

One car varies between 10 and 18 miles, the other is between 16 - 20 miles...
Haven't run out on the 2nd car, so I'm happy about that...

Even with the 1st car, running out was RARE!

My car does not have a low fuel warning light. Even if it did, I would not trust it entirely because it might be very inaccurate like the fuel guage already is. Instead, I keep track of miles traveled between fuelings on the trip odometer. At least I know about how far I can drive on a full tank.

Yes I do. I'ts a game to see how far you can make it on a tank. Once I ran out at one in the morning in a rual area returning from a high school band contest. My wife was a little upset. I have not run out since.
