Renault Scenic 1 - Fuel Reserve Capacity

Hello to everybody! Im new at this, well..I just bought a Scenic I RTE 1.600 16v a week ago, and Im getting to know the vehicle, well...Ive red that the gas tank capacity is 60 litres, many of those 60 litres are part of the reserve? This is to know how much can I go in reserve before it turns off! I like to know these facts so I can calculate everything, I hope someone can help me!

Thanks in advance!

How long is a piece of string?? The distance you can travel once the fuel warning light illuminates will depend very much on each individual car and driving style and journey type. Next time the light illuminates fill the tank to the brim then subtract that value from the overall capacity. Even then calculating the capacity is no gaurantee of possible distance remaining.

In my Laguna I did 30 miles after the fuel light came on, that used under a gallon, as Noel says, how long is a piece of string?

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
