Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

Fuel Capicity And Warning Light

February 13, 2015 about Toyota Avalon

I just bought a 2013 Avalon, it has a 17gal. fuel tank, the low light fuel light came on and it showed I had only about 20 miles left, when I stopped and filed up it held 13.5 gal. I get about 28mpg. it doesn't add up, any help?
