Nice to know there is another 8 gallons on "empty."

Lou its 26.

You have the same problem I have. "I believe"
Light comes on at 15-16 gallons?

Gauge shows half a tank at 8 gallons used?

Yes. I am not near my manual. Have not looked at it since new and just assumed that when the tank said "empty" it was.

With my elm-327 Bluetooth deal I'm able to see my fuel level in % .
When I fill up 100% my scanner says I'm only 78% full which means on the bottom end you have 25% left. Or 1/4 tank when gauge and light show empty.

We have identical trucks and I've filled up at 24 gallons once.

Talking with another forum member "works at a gm stealership" he says one leg of the fuel sender possibley broke and fuel sender is askew in the tank showing false readings.
They've seen it before.

Of course as the end consumer of the goods they are carrying, we are the ones who ultimately pay the fuel bill.

Diesel is now where as explosive as gasoline. I would not hesitate to carry an APPROVED 5 gallon can of diesel in the bed of my truck. Secure it right, from both tip over, and theft.
