I typically get between 300 and 320 miles per tank, with a 16 gallon tank that is refilled when the light comes on, typically with 14 or so gallons. If it's correct that my tank is 16 gallons, then 16 - 14 = 2.0 gallons, and from prior experience, I know that my car averages 23 mpg, so when the light comes on, I typically have about 40 miles or so, but I've stretched it to 50...I'm sure that 16 really means 16.5, plus whatever sits in your fuel lines...There is probably about 17 or so gallons in a Gen III's entire system when it is completely full...
Again, as other people have said, gas gauges are very inaccurate and differ from vehicle to vehicle.
