I too made it seventy miles after my light came on. I then filled up and figured I had about three gallons left when the light comes on. I then made the mistake of trusting my light to tell me when to buy gas and ran out without the light ever coming on. Fortunately I ran out right behind a trailer full of lawn mowers, I gave the guy about $3.50, all the change I had on me and he poured a entire five gallon can in my tank. I know think about stalling out ever time I see a bunch of lawn mowers at pleading for help.
