105 Miles With Warning Light

February 16, 2016 about Ford Focus

So I drove 105 miles at a steady 55 before the car started to run out of gas fortunately the gas station was within coasting distance. I figured out why. The car uses the sensor to enlean as much as possible once the fuel level dips below warning light level. Needless to say this isn't a good idea. I'm doing it again today warning light on.. Min 50 miles till empty.. Home is about 50 miles. Should be fun to watch the short term fuel trim enlean like crazy
