Empty light

I have a 2010 v6 mustang and my empty light for the fuel hasn't come on yet. I just purchased the car and this is my first tank. The ticker for the fuel indicator is almost hitting the line on empty and still no light? Is there an issue with it or is it normal to come on near the very end (almost hitting the line). Thanks in advance for some replies.

Re: Empty light

Wont come on until it hits the line or after, kind of odd isn't it?
The same thing happens on my '06 and old '04.

Does your '10 have any LED displays on your gauges?

Umm, I'm not sure about your year, although on your next fill up see how much it takes once you're at empty, subtract that from 16(how big your tank is) then multiply that by your gas mileage. Oh, and never get within like 2 gallons though.. It's just bad if you run out.

That's odd. Roughly how long o you have to top it off if they only warn you with the light seemingly when it's too late.
