The distance to empty feature gives you an approximation of how many miles you can drive on your current tank of gas. To view this feature, press the Trip button on your steering wheel until Range is displayed on your trip computer. Tip Because the distance to empty feature is an approximation, the setting will not show anything below 30 miles. When the range drops below 30 miles, the feature will blink to alert you that you need to refill your fuel tank.
