Low Fuel Indicator Warning Light??

I've taken my iQ down to "E" twice, now. The first time, the fuel gauge was on the last bar and was blinking and it took 6.5 gallons to fill it.

This past tank, I drove it 310 miles and was sweating it worrying about running out of gas. But it took 7.5 gallons to fill it so it really had a gallon left.

But WHY doesn't the low fuel indicator light come one? (I have two other Toyotas and the warning lights work just fine.)

I usually don't drive my cars down to below 1/4th of a tank but since this is my commute car I'd like to know my limits and WHY the fuel warning light isn't coming on. (Maybe time to have it checked at the dealer?):confused:

I have the same fear, just a blinking last bar, and usually I stop and fill up with about 6.5 gallons, so I believe it comes on when you ahve about 2 gallons even at 30mpg thats 60 miles...but I havent tried it. The CLOSEST I got to "E" was a fill-up for 8 gallons, so I still had 1/2 gallon and the blinking light had been on for about 45-50 miles, so I was afraid to go any farther, and NO other light indicator or WARNING came on...
Im not worried about a sound when the last bar is blinking I want a final notice right before im out of gas, actually on "E" not a notice when I have 60+ or Minus miles left lol! Thats a long time for a blinking light....
