I could not find anything when doing a search, so I am starting a new thread.

The last two tanks of gas, the low fuel warning light came on what the tank was about half empty. Has anyone seen this before? Each time I have put in a little over 4 gallons when I fill it.

I don't know if it is related, but a couple of weeks ago the check engine light came on. I cleared it and it came on again. I cleared it again and it has not come on since. It could be a coincidence, but the message was one that quite often means the gas cap is not tight, but it was tight.

Thanks,
Ken

I've had this problem as well. This may already be a well-known fact, but in my observation the fuel level indicator responds dramatically to driving intensity the way a "number of miles remaining" indicator works on most other modern cars. If I drive hard the tank will indicate empty well before it actually is.
