Has anyone ran their fuel tank down to confirm its 8.5 gallons ? Wondering because the smart car also lists their tank at 8.5 but in reality it has a reserve not included bringing the tank to 10 gallons .

Fascinating. No, I have not tried this (nor do I intend to) but it would be interesting to know more should additional info surface.

i thought i remember reading in the manual that the "low fuel warning" light comes on when there is about 1.5 gallons left. that would be fairly accurate, because i consistantly put 6.5 gallons on fill-up.

Nancy, mine does the same as yours and when I fill it's about the same as your so I would say that 8.5 gallons is correct.
