Is there any way to change when this comes on? It's annoying to be at 1/4 tank and have the light stay on the rest of the way. I have 75 miles left from the time it comes on.

An easy fix (and what I do) is to full up before you get to a ¼ tank to avoid the annoying low fuel warning light. Or you could just push the reset button and the warning light goes away.

I thought Reset only clears the display, not the light? I'll try it though next time.

Reset might only clear the display. I've only had the low fuel light come one a couple times and don't remember if the light stays on when hitting the reset button.

The light stays on no matter what. Reset clears the display and that's it. I heard around here you can change it. Not sure if its just the GT or not though. If my light comes on and stays on till I hit between empty and the 1/4 tank mark, it'll throw a CEL. Weird.

On my base model 2011 you can change it between 25miles left to 50 to 75. .
Stock is 50. You can't turn it off.

I forget how to change it though, as I rarely let the gas tank get that low.

well it is through the center console. Mine being a 2011 should be different than your 2013. Obviously. On mine there is a setting menu that has my key setup, stuff with the lights, etc. It is in this setting group. I just haven't gone in there in a while. I can look tomorrow when I am going to work if you want, but I just finished a 12 hour shift and I am beat!

Always a good thing to look things like this up is the manual that came with the car I'm the glove box. I'm sure if you can change it, it will be in there somewhere.

It says you can't, but I want to believe that you can haha. Other people say theirs comes on at like 25 or 50 miles left. Mine is 75.

Yea mine is 50 but I have the 3.7. Also it could be base vs premium. I'm sure the premium has more features like that than the base which is what I have. I'll go take a look in mine right quick for ya

I just read my manual and it says that its 50 for a non mykey. For a mykey its 75. And neither one can be changed. I'm not trying to start a war lol I'm just reading straight from the manual and the manual is for all 2011 mustang 3.7 &5.0's

I have a mykey set up also. You have at least one admin key and one mykey. On the admin its 50. If you set the other key to a mykey then its 75 according to the manual.

Oh I gotcha. Misunderstood you. Yeah my second key sits in my room on a hook. It hasn't left that hook since like 3 days after I got the car haha.
