3.5 Hidden Gallons

May 18, 2008 about Oldsmobile Cutlass

Based on the capacity of my gas tank and the number of gallons needed to fill up as soon as the gas light comes on, I estimate that my 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass has a 3.5 gallon reserve, on which I've driven up to 60 miles before refilling. I have never, however, driven it until completely empty.
