Welcome!

You probably will get between 80 and 100 miles before the light turns on.

I have gone 33 miles indicated on the low fuel trip meter on my 1198 S and did not run out and I believe it took around 3.6 gallons to fill but I dont think anyone has tried to find out how far is to far.

Also with electric fuel pumps in tank its not good for them to be run empty or real low since the fuel cools and lubricates the pump. Then again if it starts making squeeling sounds it might sound cool with dry clutch rattle as a background noise. LOL
