I have the same problem with my 95 model the warning light comes on and I have only got 277 miles out the tank, when I filles up it took only 40 litres and it is a 50 litre tank, is it not safe on the engine to drive with 10 litres left in the tank?

The light comes on at the reserve level, leaving you with 2. 5 gallons or so after the light goes on. If the light went on the minute before you ran out of gas, that wouldn't be so useful.
11 HP from a Cold Air Intake? Oh, yeah, PROVE IT. If you look at how your air filter is set up, it is already sucking air from the outside. I don't see how much colder it'll get with the new $200 air intake.
What you might notice is a bit better throttle response and more noise that makes it sound faster. I'd guess a couple of HP at wide open throttle is all you could hope for. They say 11, I say 3, so let's split it at 7 HP at wide open throttle and very high engine revs AND a very cold day outside.

I own a 1992 corolla. When the car is just sitting there idling, it is a little rough. If you bring the rpm up slowly, the car revs up fine and smooth. If you gun the throttle, it acts like it is running on 3 cyls. sorta cuts out about 3000 rpm I guess.
when driving the car, it is rough upon acceleration and starts bucking about 35mph.
would this have anything to do with injectors? Its going to get a tune-up this weekend. should I look at anything else?
