You got about 5 gal in the tank when the light comes on.
I can’t see what year your truck is on my phone, but those numbers defy the info that Jake posted

Too Tall Extreme Anxiety = a low fuel gauge and a sign saying; "Next services 75 miles".

Im too picky for that! while there are plenty of fuel stops here in the fort, I buy at one place Costco. That way if I have a fuel problem I know where to go, plus itís a good price, close to home and the fuel is clean (Iíve cut open several filters through the years). Now on the road Iím probably not going to run down the Costcoís but if Iím probably going to be pulling my toy hauler, all 45 foot of it, so you ainít sticking that in everywhere (thatís what she said too) so Iím still careful not to run too low. It doesnít take long to burn a 1/4 tank when your racking down 8 mpgís.

RayK As far as the fuel cooler at the back of the GM trucks, they suck. They corrode and I found this with my Duramax when towing my car to the track when I stopped at a rest area. Nice pool of diesel under the bed of the truck. Glad the RAM doesn't have it.

It would be nice to have a larger fuel tank on the RAM. I'm considering a 2019 long bed to carry a camper. Maybe Ford has a better idea with a larger tank.

My 2016 RAM 2500, CC, short box, 6.7L, 3.42 gears and 32 gallon tank is lucky to see 400 miles/tank under similar conditions.

Having a 50% fuel tank is awesome, but not a big enough factor to dissuade over a RAM imho.

I prefer the RAM; however, the Ford towing is no slouch, comparatively.

Thatís odd on your Ram. I get 600+ miles out of 35-37 gallons on a regular basis with about 60/40 mixed driving (hwy/city) on my 2012. Itís deleted but 2500 CCSB 4x4 285/70/17 tires & 3.73 gears.

Prior to deletes I still managed 480 miles normally.

Itís a short bed and I thought 34 was the listed capacity.

When I run it down all the way I regularly put 37+ gallons in it.
