I was very low on gas, then put a 1.5 gallons in to get me to a another gas station where the gas was cheaper. On the way it cut off. I put more gas in and it still won't start.

False economy that.....
the pump is fuel cooled and Lubricated,
running it dry, wrecks the pump. (at the least lost the prime)

this car is no like an old carb car ,where this is ok.

if lucky key on and off 10 times, and hear the pump, it you hear it run.
it may prime. some cars 1/2 the pump is dead until cranked.
so easy to drain a battery priming the pump.

SOURCE: 97 honda civic wont start.

If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.

SOURCE: 2005 honda pilot will not start

I had a similar issue, but I think it's because I left the tailgate door open slightly and the built-in light killed my battery. I jumped my battery, but I wasn't able to start my car again and this time the door was closed properly. I was told by Honda that the batteries only last for about 2-3 years. I have since replaced the battery and no more issues.

SOURCE: I can't fill my tank up with gas on my 2004 Honda

Your problem is the breather on the tank
Its a pipe fitted to the tank that lets the air out when you put fuel in. and it sounds like its blocked up or has a kink in it
Find it ,clean it, and your ok to fill up.

Look in the relay box under your hood and find the fuel pump relay. Look for another relay with the same amperage rating and switch them, then try to start the engine. f that does nothing, look for a way to loosen the timing belt cover so you can visually inspect the timing belt for wear damage, tension or failure. If it all looks good, then I would change the fuel filter and while you have the fuel lines disconnected, insert them into an empty plastic bottle mouth and secure them so they won't come out. Then try cranking the engine to see if fuel sprays into the bottle and if it does, does it seem to have good pressure. If it has low or no pressure you probably have a bad fuel pump.

SOURCE: Honda Civic -2001. Gas fill more than tank capacity?

There is about a gallon additional capacity in the filter, hoses, filler tube, etc.
But I have never seen anyone let it get low enough intentionally to ever notice. Don't wait for the light to come on. That is not very accurate, and you could easily find yourself stranded out of gas.

I can't fill my tank up with gas on my 2004 Honda Pilot. I get about 1/2 gallon in and the pump either stops or spits gas back out at me. The tank is not full.

How many more miles do you have when the fuel light comes on?


Depends on a lot of factors:

1. Gas mileage of your vehicle. If you get excellent gas mileage, 50 MPG +, you can go quite a way. But with a 98 GMC Jimmy, you're probably getting 19 MPG at the best.

2. How you drive your vehicle. The gas mileage means nothing if you are street racing and redlining your vehicle through every gear with the low fuel light on. You definitely won't make it very far like that!

3. The make and model of vehicle. There is no set national standard for when the low fuel light illuminates on a vehicle, so they vary greatly anywhere from half a gallon remaining to 2 gallons remaining. In newer vehicles, the ECU actually takes into account how you drive the vehicle and what speeds you typically go as to when to turn on the low fuel light.

For your specific application, I would say it comes on when you have roughly 1 to 2 gallons left which means that as long as you are driving in a fuel conserving manner you can probably make it about 30 miles or so before you'll be running on fumes. But that should be plenty of time to find a gas station right?!

Hope this helps!

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..
