Thank you Max...but how do you determine the gallons used? I don't know how many gallons I've used once my indicator hits E since I can't find the reserve capacity listed anywhere.

I'm not sure what portion of the equation you're missing.

If only concerned about the reserve amount, typically a vehicle's capacity there is 1-2 gallons.

BUT, you do not want to get that low as the fuel pump requires submergence to keep cool, is prone to lifting bottom sediment AND only works harder to "lift" fuel to the ultimate (engine proper) goal. In other words...constant minimal fuel in the tank can lead to early pump failure.

I get it - you mean measure how many gallons I've used based on how many gallons I refill. Makes sense.
