A quick search would yeild the answer to this question.

It verys by vehicle and by day it seems. People report anywhere from 1-6 gallons when the low fuel light comes on, so there is only one way for you to find out...

If i fill up right when my light comes on, I probably have about 3-4 Gallons of gas left.

They vary a bit truck to truck but it's easy to determine how much is left.

Just fill it up when the light first comes on. Subtract the gallons pumped from 19.5 (the nominal tank capacity of a Supercab like yours). The difference is the approximate number of gallons that were remaining when the light came on.

Mine takes about 16 gallons to refill, so my light comes on with about 3.5 gallons left.
