Default 2003 Accord Low Fuel Light


I just purchase a 2003 Accord Coupe EX-L new from a dealer. They only
had a 2004 manual for me. If anyone has an extra manual I would buy
it...I have ordered one, but the order is messed up.

My question. I have read the 2004 manual only says to refill when the
low fuel light come on...My calculations say that I should have about
4.5 gallons left when the light comes on...anyone have the Honda number
or done the math themselves????

Thanks,

Pat

PS...I notice the MPG discussions earlier. Good gas makes a big
difference at least in San Antonio....

There's something very wrong with the way you read that (or typed it)
Were you reading it in a second language, perhaps? With your
explanation, what would you do if you were half-way thru the desert, and
came to the only gas station? Wait till the light came on?

You're free to refill your tank whenever you want to. Take full
advantage of 'gas wars', just don't overfill.

P.S. Most Hondas have a generous 'reserve' . . . must be from their
history as a motorcycle builder.

The best couse of action is to fill the tank when it gets to the last
quarter. If the light ever does come on, stop at the next gas station you
see. You don't want to take a chance and end up on the side of the road
with no gas. If you plan to go thru a desert--fill up when it is below the
half way point.

Did the math on a 2004 EX I4 and came out something over three
gallons.

Any of my last couple of cars seemed happy to go 30+ miles after the
light comes on, I've never had occassion to push it much more than
that.
