In the 10 years I've been driving I have never run out of gas. Not even when I was 16 with a 1987 Trans Am with a 305ci engine, a worn-out Quadrajet
carburetor, $30/week paycheck $4/ gallon gas, and a lead foot. I've come close but never actually run out.

As of today, I've had my License for 4 years. I've never ran out of gas completely. My 2013 Chevy Spark (I don't recommend it but its got the job done
for me so far, albeit barely) has a Gas tank logo that lights up I believe around 50 miles. Then, once my digital thing tells me I have 25 miles left,
it starts flashing EMPTY. So I know if its flashing EMPTY i've got to high tail it to the gas station.
I have a 2012 Chevy Sonic that does practically the same thing. Once the gauge says empty and the light comes on, there should be about 2 gallons left
and so around 50 miles before you're truly empty. I don't know how you stand the Spark though. I had one as a loaner when my Sonic was getting worked
on at the dealership once. It was all that thing could do to go 55mph up the hump of the bridges around here with it floored.
That, and I could turn around and touch the rear glass from the drivers seat. Imagine how frightened I was on my way home from the dealership in that
little Micromachine, I hadn't even been in the thing for 5 minutes when some minivan from VA in front of me decides all of the sudden that they want
to stop by a Sunsations tourist beach shop, they slam on brakes, I slam on brakes, and the jacked-up old Toyota with giant tires behind me has to
swerve off the road to keep from running over me. I'm glad he was paying attention because there wouldn't have been much left of that car if he
