Long Run On Corolla

June 22, 2007 about Toyota Corolla

as the light comes on ages before the gauge shows empty, I carried extra fuel and found that it goes more than 100 miles before running out.

Have your gauge checked as it is most surely busted.

Hi, Thats because the gauge is not showing empty but R = Reserve. At least that is what my 2002 corolla shows me :)

Seconded: '94 Corolla - light goes on at ~ten gallons down. Manual says 13.2 (13.1?) gallons capacity = Theoretical 100 miles right there at my average 35 mpg. Haven't had the time, though, to test the theory since the kids were born.

My '96 does this as well, the light comes on early. I thought that it was a problem with the gauge but I've had it looked at and they said that the light turns on when you have about 3 gallons left therefore the gauge still shows you having some fuel. So, 3 gallons is about 80 miles for me (mostly in town miles in a mountain city), or more if you drive very conservatively. :)

Mikor az én kölköm kicsi volt, az összes plüssről levágtam a cimkét :(Valahogy nem szerettem, hogy ott lifegnek, rojtozódnak.Ma már máshogy nézek "rájuk"Egy szép és jó cimke sokat tud dobni egyjátékon.Például azok amiket a blogtalin vettünk, szerintem nagyon tetszetősek.Egyes játékoknál kifejezetten a cimkéket használják díszítésnek.Akkot most mire is szPotzzak?aáraatlankodvm

So what is the fuel capacity before reserve light comes on, and what is the reserve capacity in gallons? Is the 13.2 g the total capacity? Thank you.
