Actually an 11.9 gallon (45 liter) tank, in the USA.

Support the troops:  Bring them home ASAP.

If? Maybe.

_If_ there's actually that much gas left, then yes, but that's not
something you can possibly know and certainly not something you should
rely on.

Speaking from experience, you shouldn't assume you can go more than 50
miles when the warning light comes on.

Really not an answer, but it may lead to one:  excellent photo show of a gas
tank disassembly at http://priuschat.com/the-gas-bladder-exposed-t31545.html

I'm wondering if the "low fuel" warning is activated when the "everything
tank" is no longer full of fuel. It looks like the bladder is essentially a
reservoir for that smaller tank.
