How accurate is the "approx distance" gauge

I just wanted to ask how accurate is the gauge that shows the distance left on the tank when driving.

The #'s seem to go down pretty fast, even though I drive the speed limit in 8th gear.

Those numbers barely move (as does the fuel level needle) when I have a totally full tank. Down when things are low the needle and numbers move much quicker.

I think the #'s are pretty accurate overall. If you fill up and note the distance to empty it estimates, and then note your actual miles driven when you next fill up. I think they'll be pretty close.

I would suspect there is some padding where 0 is actually half a gallon of gas left or something. However, I'm not willing to test this hypothesis. :)
