Default Fuel gauge

How accurate is your fuel gauge? I drove my car for 50 miles after the idiot
light came on, the gauge stopped moving and rested at the bottom of the
indicator.

But when I refueled I discovered I still have two gallons left.

In this day and age, I'm so tried of inaccurate indicators and idiot lights.

Anyone else have a problem?

The reason I bring it up it I know Honda has a history of faulty sensors in
some tanks.

This is funny because I was just griping about this today. I know they
always have a "little extra" in the tank when the meter shows
empty.....however, we can never really know how low we can go until we run
out of gas. That is why I kind of like the cars that say you have 20 miles
left on this tank of gas....but then again, who knows if those are accurate
either. Screw the stupid people to know they are about the run out of gas
and still keep driving. I would rather know EXACTLY how much fuel I have
left and know that when I reach this line, im out of gas....not this mystery
game of "I wonder if I can make it on this tank of gas?"......

any thoughts??

Exactly, when you consider the digitized world of today, it would seem
logical and inexpensive to be able to monitor the amount remaining and
consumption.
I commute to work and I try to use my home town gas station (cheaper). So it
would help to know if I can make it home or not.
