Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

Low Fuel Indicator Wrong?

April 8 about Honda Civic

When my low fuel light came on, it stated I had 58 miles left, while also displaying 26.7 MPG. I went 25 miles to work, and it said I had 25 miles left. When I left work, I filled up my tank to the very top, and I put in 10.2 gallons. I was surprised to see I had 12.39 fuel capacity, because that meant I had over 2 gallons left. So using the Honda indicator, I am getting 26.7 mpg, yet only had 25 miles till empty, while having over 2 gallons in the tank So I am confused because is the Honda trying to overestimate running empty, or is the calculations all off?
