Default Low fuel warning question

Today I had an "interesting" experience. I ran out of gas, just as I was pulling into the station. Based on the fill, the tank was dry. However, what was interesting is that the fuel gauge was clearly above empty, perhaps 1/16 of a tank, and the low fuel indicator was not on. I seldom get that low, but when I bought the car, a 2009 Accord, I did a controlled test, and the warning did come on with about 3 gallons remaining.

I am curious whether anyone else has had a problem with something like this, and what the fix was? Also, should the fuel low level indicator come on with the other warning light tests when you turn the ignition switch to on? Mine doesn't, and the manual is silent.
