Default How many miles/kilometres can you drive a Honda Accord 2011 sedan after the fuel gauge reads empty?

DEPENDING ON DRIVING CONDITIONS AND MILEAGE, MAYBE 50 OR 60 MILES.

Maybe 10-20 miles depending on if you are going up or down hill, if you are in stop/go/stop/go traffic. Many different conditions. The idiot that said 50-60 miles is dumb. That's like a 1/4 tank right there.

Sky, you are the one who is dumb. The first answer is highly accurate.































I have 2007 Toyota Corolla and once the fuel light comes on, it can go at least 90 more miles safely.































I have driven 90 miles with the fuel gauge on E, in corolla. The gauge actually went below E too and it was still going strong.































Not sure about Accord, but 15 to 20 miles just can't be true. It has to go a lot longer on E.































The tank is actually empty when the gauge falls below E too. If it is touching E, it means there is fuel.































Once the gauge drops below E, then you're in trouble. After that point the fuel light starts blinking on the dashboard. This means the car is about to totally run out.































It just doesn't stop if the fuel light turns on. Automakers design cars to actually go a whole lot more once E appears.

You should never let your vehicle go below 1/4 tank. What if you had an emergency in the middle of the night, you lost your atm card and you just found out that your mother that lives 60 miles away is deathly ill and she is asking for you. This is just an example. People that let their cars even get to the "E" are asking for trouble. When you run totally out of gas, you are going to need more than a gallon to get the fuel pump pumping again. From a dry tank, it takes about 3 gallons to properly purge all the air and fill the fuel lines with fuel. Keep those two issues in mind.
