Oh wow! I thought I was stretching my tanks lifespan. Congrats are due to you my man! lol

So does this message pop up on all the models if you let the fuel run low enough, or is it only in premium models?

Yep. Strange thing. My 06 Vert has traction control as an option, but not the message center.

I've gone 9 miles past the "empty" announcement while driving cross country (not a lot of open gas stations at 3:00am in Midwest farm country). You haven't lived until you've seen the gas gauge lighting turn red in the middle of nowhere

I've only done it once, but at some point in time after the low fuel light came on, and, I was well below the "50 miles to empty" warning, all of my led dash lights switched to a bold bright red color.

I'd like the message center to say "DANGER, WILL ROBINSON! DANGER!" when the lights go red...
