This will depend on the type of car you are driving. However, it usually indicates that you have about1.5-2 gallons left. The miles left will also depend on the terrain, weather, driving conditions, among other factors.
It depends on the vehicle (miles per gallon) and your driving speed (I was always told 35 mph generally gave the best mileage). You can ask a dealer for your vehicle how many GALLONS are left when the light goes on and figure out the miles from that. When the light DOES come on, I would get gas as soon as possible.
30 miles left after the light comes on is a good rule of thumb...I've checked this on several cars since I hate stopping for gas and like to wait till the last minute. You can usually make it 40 miles with no problems and i've pushed cars to 50 before but thats when it gets risky. The person who said 5 gallons/100 miles is out of their mind
Merely saying how many gallons of gas left in your tank is senseless since you were asking "how many more miles can you travel when the gas light comes on"...try to check on your car's manual and see how much (more or less) gas you will have in your tank when the red light comes on and check also how many miles can your car travel for every gallon of gas. For example if your manual says that when the light comes on u will have more or less 5 gal of gas left. So if your car travels 28 miles/gal of gas...then you will have at least 140 miles to travel. Check your GPS also for the nearest gas station.

You should never let your car get that low....over time gas tanks can get junk in them from the gas, if you are running your car that low, the fuel pump can start pulling that stuff out of the tank, into the fuel filter and eventually can clog your fuel system up.

Do not think of it as gallons or litres left, For this is not the basis behind the installation of the fuel light on the automobile. Actually gal/litres will vary depending on weather the vehicle is rated at 10mpg or 40mpg and is also adjusted by your vehicle computer's current determined Average MPG and is adjusted accordingly. The industry standard was originally established based on the evaluation of distance to nearest fueling station in any direction. That distance was determined to be 50 miles... meaning that there would be a gas station 50 miles in any direction from your current location, and the light was set to come on with about 50 miles to spare in the tank. Just to inform you that you needed to fill up, and to give you just enough gas to make it to your nearest station based on that average (50 Miles). However there are some remote areas that is 100miles + between stations but during their research they discovered that in most cases a vehicle was 50miles or less from a station when they ran out...
DePends wat kind of car mileage u get aka suv midsize or compact exotic cars happen to use up more seein as they use a hefty v8 or v12 motor if ur not using either ur not exotic sorryyy although some classics may speak otherwise
2013 Nissan Titan, The fuel light come on when you have about 4 gallons left. If you continue driving it will flash at "lets say" 40 miles left. Once you get to about 25 miles the Mileage will stop flashing and a Caution light appears and this starts flashing - - - !! LOL, been there done that.
