GAS LIGHT !!!!!

ok so my lude is pretty low on gas its started to go below the last mark and the gas light hasnt come on. ive seen it come on before but i dont remember it getting this low. ill mention that ive changed my fuel filter like 6 days ago and also added octane booster. do those have any interference? i still dont know why the gas light wont come on. i almost want to test it and keep going to see if it will come on

Re: GAS LIGHT !!!!!

Just buy a little gallon gas can, keep it in the trunk and drive around until you run out. I don't think I've ever seen my gas light, I even drove 400 miles on one tank before and never saw the light on, the needle was pretty damn low and still nothing. I'd almost like to try it out too to see if it ever comes on.

Re: GAS LIGHT !!!!!

Never drive your tank that low lol you're only asking for fuel pump issues in the future. Idk why it doesn't come on though that's strange. My gas like comes on when I still have around 4 gallons in the tank, I haven't seen it in months though because I always fill up around the quarter mark.

I forget which way you need to be to see if the light comes on or not - but if you're that low and want to find out if the light still works... do that or just pull the bulb out and check -_-

Re: GAS LIGHT !!!!!

Really? The light? I'd be worried if the fuel needle never moved, then you have a real problem. Leave 2 gallons in the tank so the pump is covered and lubricated. Also whatever sediment that sank to the bottom overtime can get sucked up into the pump.

If your bulb is gone, you need to remove the dash to get at it.

Re: GAS LIGHT !!!!!

it means you still have reserve even your gauge is in low position it doesn't mean you're out of gas, it will only light up when the reserve is super low.
