Beware of what the manual tells you!....
I have a type R and got caught out on the motorway, the indicator reached zero and as per the manual I thought I had about 4 litres to go (just under a gallon), so I figured at 70 mph averaging 32.5 mpg I had another 25 miles to reach the services, the car did 11 miles and conked out...
The worse thing was I then walked 3 miles and back with a fiver's worth of juice in a jenny can, stuck it in the car but still it wouldn't start, I called the AA and he came with another fiver's worth - stuck it in but it still wouldn't start!!
In the end he jacked the car up at the back, probably at least a foot in the air and it eventually started to turn over.
Since then I never let the computer read less than 25 miles to go!!
