Hi,


I have recently bought a Kia Rio 1 1.4 petrol and would like to know how many miles i can do when the petrol light comes on before it completely runs out. I don't plan on doing this often but its always handy to know

Not sure but it will depend on driving conditions and style of driving. I would get to the nearest garage as soon as it came on. That way you wont be stranded. Or carry a gallon of fuel just incase.

according to the car booklet the light will come on when there is between 5 - 6.5 litres left.

Think of two coke bottles left and that's actually quite a bit of fuel.

I have driven 18 miles with the light on and not had any problems.
