From my 08 TL's manual: "When the indicator comes on, there is about 2.3 U.S. gal...of fuel remaining in the tank before the needle reaches E. There is a small reserve of fuel remaining in the tank when the needle does reach E."
So that means that there is more than 2.3 gallons left
My "low fuel" indicator came on, and I drove about 20 miles before filling up. I put 13.6 gallons in the tank, so it looks like there's at least 3.5 gallons left after the warning message comes on.
Nevertheless, I've read somewhere that this sort of engine can be seriously damaged if it runs out of fuel, so it's better to be safe than sorry.
