I think we have had our 2018 for a month or so now, and this got me good today! The last bar started flashing, for the first time since we've owned it, and I was on an unfamiliar turnpike with unknown chances to get gas. I drove at least 15miles till I could find a gas station after the flashing started, and I was beginning to get a little anxious. I was 50miles from home and I would have had to call roadside assistance, as no one could come bring me gas. Then I found a gas station and... 7.55 gallons! I could have went another 50miles easy!
The other day purposely estimated to drive the tank as low as possible. My previous calculation that the empty bars start flashing when there's almost 2 gallons left matched the refill amount of 8.8 gallons.

Did the same test today.
- Distance driven between start of empty bars and gas station: 37.2 mi
- Fuel efficiency between start of empty bars and gas station: 36.9 mpg
- Fuel up: 8.367 g
I'll let you guys do the math.
