No you don't....you have a 19gallon tank that has a 4 gallon reserve...which is why when you fill up you only ever get like 13.5-14gal in. The oem gauge is horribly innacurate at low levels. You can go at least another 50-60 miles once the light comes on. It's designed that way because the pump needs to remain submersed to keep it cool....and as long as there is fuel for it to pump.

If it makes you feel any better the most that I have ever squeezed into my 22.5 tanks is 20 gallons. And that is after doing 10 more miles after the miles remaining hit 0 and every little buzzer went off for every.

That makes a lot more sense, I had driven it an extra 10-15 miles after the light came on just to make the tank lighter before I dropped it but there was still a lot of gas in there for some reason. I really appreciate the info, it's been bugging me a LOT.

How was Tommy Rockers last night? We the film crew from A&E setting up yet while you guys were there?

They are shooting a pilot for a new show there tonight. It is a show featuring culinary battles between big time Vegas chefs from strip properties competing on food trucks, it is iron chef style. They are shooting from 7pm to 1am tonight in the parking lot for those that may be interested in that sort of thing.

This sounds pretty interesting actually, especially if they let us try the food

So yeah the teraflex coil spring leveling kit easily netted me 2.5-3 inches of lift. Hopefully once I put the winch on the front will drop a little bit. I do not want it looking too goofy with stock tires.
