Re: Low Gas Indicator
Low gas indicator hmmm never needed to worry about it long *** the sending unit reported the correct position on the dash correlating to the amount of fuel in the tank but my guess for you would be let the dealership do it if you are expierincing more than just a low gas indicator

It depends on the error code(s) being reported. A very common one (P0457) is that the engine computer thinks the gas cap is loose. The gas filler neck often develops rust holes which cause this code, fix is repair usually quite easy, or replace. There are many other error codes. Look around your area for a Subaru shop other than the dealer. Your problem fix may much simpler and cheaper than the dealer, who often give the most expensive, worst case, repair options.
Both the Check Engine light and the Slip Indicator light on my 2009 Tacoma came on for no apparent reason. The truck has only 34,000 miles on it. After reading blogs on the internet by people having the same problem with their Tacoma, I tried the easiest potential fix first: just tighten the gas cap until it "clicks" and disconnect the positive cable from the battery for about 20 minutes. Bingo, that fixed the problem! Those simple actions saved me a trip to the Toyota dealer and who knows how much in charges by their service department.
Sounds like you have either a bad fuel pump or a leak in the line somewhere. With a leak in the line it will take a long time for the gas to get up toward the engine. When it sits over night the gas line empties back into the tank and the process starts all over again
It could go off after running some unleaded gas such as a couple gallons of 'premium unleaded' through it. But you should also try to reset it. To do this follow these simple steps:
1. Write down the radio code of the car.
2. Disconnect the battery negative terminal for about twenty minutes. Then reconnect back the battery negative terminal.
3. The indicator light should be 'off'.
