Do you panic when you see the petrol warning in your car? THIS is how many kilometers you can still drive!


Now you’ll know exactly when it’s time for a pit stop at the petrol station

You might have experienced the fear of seeing the red light of your petrol gauge going on while you’re driving, without having any idea how long you can still keep driving for. Every kilometer you drive increases the anxiety, which doesn’t exactly make for a smooth and comfortable drive. Luckily, you can now know exactly how long you can keep driving for in your car.

This will prevent you from getting stranded at the side of the road without any petrol.

It’s important to know that the amount of kilometers you can keep on driving while the red light is burning differs per car make and model. This is pretty logical when you think about it, because most car models have differently sized petrol tanks. Dutch magazine Libelle has compiled a table with a clear overview of how many kilometers you can still keep driving on an ’empty tank’. This can save you a lot of stress when you’re on the highway and you’ll know exactly when it’s time to make a pit stop.

This might also be good to know: the majority of petrol tanks have a back up on hand of 2 liters of petrol. So, chances are you can definitely keep driving until the next petrol station.
