Default 1992 Acura reserve gas tank?

I was reading in my manual that I have 10 litres in my reserve tank, my question is how far can I drive once the light comes on?Any info would be greatly appreciated

i own a repair shop,and you have about 40 miles left on it when the light comes on, i know this because i had one in my shop working on it,and the light was on,and when i test drove it, i ran out,and i had put about 40 miles on it testing it out and making sure it was going to be ok,,i call it a good learning experience,but that's about how far it will go,good luck,i hope this help,s.

i no that question..you can drive like 10 miles and then you will not have any gas.the resurve is the hose in s tank that gets full when you fill it up but i would not push it..

Approximately 40 miles sounds correct.But you do not want to run it that low.This vehicle is Fuel injected. It is imparitive, that you keep the fuel injectors clean and clear of any debris, that would be picked up at the bottom of the tank, As a result of running it low...... or even worse completely out.

i had a 93, its the same, and about 50 highway miles, but don't let the light come on it stresses the feul pump out by sucking whatever it can mixing with air also if u decide to build it please dont ghetto it up with stupid body kits and stereo, keep it clean maybe even a carbon front spoiler they look really good,

If you know what your MPG are multiple that by 2.6 because 10 liters is 2.6 gallons. that will get you a little closer to the actual distance that you can go. if you get 20 MPG you could get 52 miles. That depends on if your gauge reads the 10 liter reserve correctly also. I would suggest when the fuel light comes on stop and fill the tank.
