2007 Chevrolet Aveo

February 20, 2013 about Chevrolet Aveo

I have had my Chevrolet Aveo since it had 23 miles on the odometer so I know much about this vehicle due to my history with it.

The reserve tank has 1.7 gallons once the 'Low Gas Light' turns on according to the Owner's Manual.

The U.S. Department of Energy has the EPA fuel economy for the Aveo at 23 mpg for City and 31 mpg on highway with an Average MPG of 26 MPG on Unleaded gasoline.

The formula therefore is 1.7 gallons x 26 MPG = 44.2 Miles for Distance allotted with Reserve Tank.

               44.2 Miles = Distance on Reserve Tank
