I was wondering if it is bad to let the fuel light come one before filling up the gas tank. All of my miles tend to be freeway miles and I commute about 80 miles a day. I get tired of filling up every 2 1/2 days and sometimes wait until the next day when the gas light comes on to fill up.

No, it just lets you know you have two gallons left. You get better gas mileage as your tank empties since you are loosing the extra weight.

that's the walking timer...if it goes on too long...you get to walk;)

besides that,no other issues...however it can be hard on some types of fuel pumps to actually be run dry. I pretty much always wait for the light to re-fuel, as long as i know a gas station is nearby.

I used to commute 80 miles a day too, but never had to fill up every 2 1/2 days.
And the light comes on at about a 1/8 of a tank. Should give you about 4 or so
gallons of fuel + or - . Maybe you do a boat of driving once you get home or
something :) :)

Maybe it's every 3 days I fill up, but is there really 2 or 4 gallons left on the tank when the fuel light comes on. How big is the fuel tank on the xb. I usually fill up on average 9 to 10.2 gallons on my fillups.
