Keep in mind that when you run that low, you run the risk of running the pump dry when cornering. Each time that happens, you get pump damage. Three times and you will kill your pump dead.
Plus, for you guys that live where its humid, you fill the tank up with as much humid air as possible every time. Over the years, you get rust and water in the tank. I always fill it up and never go below 1/4 tank. Its just a good practice that doesn't cost a dime more money.

This is sort of funny
but first like above NEVER run one below 1/4 tank
second all depends how how fast or slow you are driving/ steady speed or stop and go etc . Common sense tells you that if you get to say between 1/4 to 1/2 tank just stop and buy gas , you have to anyways so why wait until you're down to 30 miles or less ?

Absolutely. This is all why I think it's a good idea to run Lucas in the tank from time to time. Lubricates everything.
