What does the “miles to E” warning mean?

Your car is equipped with some pretty sophisticated technology capable of not only displaying the amount of gas in the tank through the fuel gauge, but of telling you just how many more miles you can drive on what’s left in the tank. If you see the “XXX miles to E” warning in the message center, it means that the tank is starting to get low and you can drive approximately that many more miles before running out of fuel. To clear the message, fill up your tank.
