Just got a used SEL Premium with 9k miles on it, and it's first time filling up. Apparently I had 45 miles until empty, and when I filled up just now it was only about 14.5 gallons. I would've expected it to be closer to 17.5-18 gallons. Anyone else notice this?

The Atlas is set to show "zero miles left" when there are something like 2 gallons still in the tank. The light comes on with about 4 gallons left saying 50 miles remaining.

It's a ridiculous "safety net".

To answer your question, yes, it has been noticed....

18.5 gal tank. Light on at ~16 gal used so ~2.5 left. Range will go to 0 with ~1.5 gal left/30 miles to go. If you enable the "gal to fill" with OBDEleven, you can really push it until you get to 18 b/c you will know exactly how far you can drive.
