What do you mean fuel light. The one that comes on when you are running low on gas? If so hen it should be right by you gas gauge, mine is in the lower left corner by the gas gauge if this is what youre talking about.
My gas guage is off somewhat, and I don't know why. My gas light came on fullbright one day and I winged it and drove from Hurst to Grand Prairie and back (about 35 miles round trip for those not in the Dallas, Texas area) and I still never ran out of gas. I never really know. I just reset the trip odometer and fill up every 300 miles or so.
Yeah i usually get about 320 per tank. The needle barely graces the top of the white part where the E is at. Does it turn on at the bottom?? When i fill up i put about 10 or 11 gallons. Is it a 13 gallon tank??
Only ONCE with my 97 sentra did my fuel light come on. I actually ran out of gas one time, because I misjudged how much I had in my tank (Way back in the day, I used to get 360 miles to a full tank, now I get around 260-280), Not once did my fuel light come on. I'm curious about that...my dealer can't seem to find the problem. I just fill up now when I am at 1/4 of a tank. --> good rule of thumb, IMO.
hmm...that's probably why aminidab also only noticed the fuel light working with the cluster with the tach, and not before. Guess I don't have a fuel light in mine(no tach)...does anything bad happen to the engine if you run it 'till it runs out of gas?
well its is not good for the fuel pump if you are constantly running under a 1/4 tank of gas. Im not sure if it hurts if you run out of gas, and also im not sure if you might have to hit a reset switch like in some domestic cars.
