    How much petrol when light comes on!!

    So my petrol light came on just as I got to work today and the petrol stations near my office are stupidly expensive.

    How much is left in the tank when the light comes on (03 Sri 1., the gauge is just on the first red line, not yet reached the 2nd one!!

    When my light comes on I usually have another 10 litres left in the tank.
