Interesting! Please let us know what the dealer says. My personal theory is that the blinking last bar is acting much like the reserve tank on a motorcycle( my Honda 600rr did almost exactly the same thing, and had a similar bar style indicator) so when the bar starts blinking you know you have another good so many miles, that so many being the million dollar question. I don't think it even has another light that will come on if the fuel gets any lower, and if it does I'm not brave enough to find out lol. As soon as I see it start to blink, I pull in a gas station on average I'm filling up about what you said 6.5 gallons give or take. If our tank is 8.5 gallons then that leaves us 2 gallons if we only got 30mpg then that's 60 miles to go, one hell of an early warning if you ask me!!
