If this helps anyone:

My car's "miles left" showed 0 and I travelled an extra 1.5 miles to the fuel station.

I filled 48.5 litres (maximum it would take)

The tank holds 53l.

This means I had 9% fuel left.

I did 409 miles, so I could have done an extra 36 miles.

Basically, it appears the car has roughly 10% fuel remaining when it says 0% is remaining.

I've only tracked it once. I'll do it again next time I fill up and update this post.

when the display showed 25 miles to empty and the the icon was flashing, I filled up with 11 gallon on a 13.6 gallon tank. I could have gone 50+ miles more. modern fuel tanks use the gas to cool the fuel pump located inside the gas tank. running the tank near empty runs the risk of burning out the fuel pump, a very expensive repair!

Every car is different.

I guess you were either in the backwoods or just needed to know. Every car is different. For the price of an Ecosport you shouldn't try to be so precise, maybe. To each his own.

unless in a dire emergency, I would fill up around 50 miles to empty. at least you know you have that extra 1.5-2 gallons if you really need it.
