It cost $60 and its just a live scan tool, its pretty useful for monitoring things in real time but can't do freeze frame or data logs. Still worth the money though.

Yeeeahh lol im a little tired. Thats not gonna happen with my renix . I dont know of a place to buy replacement sending units for a mj, i remember looking when i put the tank in. When i get some time ill probably pull the pump and try cleaning up the sending unit, might be worth a shot. I dont know if i can rig up a new sending unit thats actually accurate.

One of the trails we frequent about once a month you could drive your WRX down as well but its my favorite place to ride because there is a beach and we back down to the water and toss out the lawn chairs and BBQ grills.

That sounds amazing. Fortunately I enjoy just driving the thing and finding nice views and lakes to take pictures of. Plus I'm kind of an amateur astronomer (very amateur) so enjoy driving to secluded parts of the mountains to take pictures of the sky.

According to my owner's manual , our XJ has a total capacity of 20.2 gallons containing a reserve of 3.6 gallons .

But , yeah . The light seems to come on plenty early .

My wife says she read 'somewhere' that the light comes on earlier than other vehicles because Jeeps tend to be used for off road and / or driven in places which are generally far from services , allowing enough fuel to get back to civilization .

IDK for sure , but that sounds logical to me .

Rausch Creek! A wrx most definitely would not be useful there.

Yea that does make sense.

And yea I'm sure rausch creek is great but I have no friends to go with me and it kinda sucks paying lol

Mine comes on at 1/4 tank. I can run my 22 mile daily route for about 4 days and still never run out.

Reserve is that portion of fuel that is available immediately before the 'WALK' light comes on .
