well since you are wearing out your fuel pump really fast by running your vehicle out of gas and not allowing it to cool properly since it will no longer be submerged in fuel i will say not that long .

i think there is 2 gallons left when the light come on or its 2 liters , its in the owners manual .

Haven't run it out of gas yet. The wife was driving it and asked me how far she could go with the light on. I told her she could go as far as the closest gas station!!!!!!

awesome answer , shouldn't run a electric fuel pump under a 1/4 tank they overheat and die . jeeps aren't really bad for it but it doesn't prolong there lives .

best way to figure it out is the light on is less then a 1/4 of a tank so how far does a 1/4 of a tank get you .

i would guess 50-75 km .

a quote from my owners manual "all cherokee's (86-91) activate the "low fuel" light at 2 gallons left."
