I have 2 NA's and I am too scared to wait for the "Empty light" signal to light up.


Does miatas have problems with the fuel meter sensors?

i have never seen it light up. is it broken?

Yeah, I waited once.

Then it died on the side of the freeway. I was not amused. :)

You don't wait to wait till empty cause it will burn our your fuel pump, but you don't want to never let it run super low cause you'll get crud settling at the bottom of your tank.

I died in 3rd gear cruising down a major road. I found out the hard way waiting for the light on my 01. There was no light. The car was empty when the needle hits the top left hand corner of the 'E'

I'm not going to risk it anymore. Car drives better when there's more fuel in it anyways.

I have put about 11.5 gal in. At that point, I was past "E". IIRC, the car has a capacity of 11.9gal, and will show E (like most cars) when there is about 2gal left in the tank.
