Most vehicles would have around 25 Mi / 40 Km after the Low Fuel Light comes on. The way to check just how far your Dodge goes till empty Is to take a can/s of fuel (2 Gal /10 L) and funnel with you. Note your Odometer or reset trip meter when light comes on and drive until car stops. This will give your distance to total empty.
However it is not good pratice to consistently drive with the Low Fuel Light glowing because the idea of the Low Fuel Light is to tell you that you should add more fuel to the tank to help keep the electric pump, that is inside the tank, from overheating which could eventually cause the pump to burn out if there is insufficient fuel in the tank for cooling purposes. The best prevention to maximise the life of the pump is to not allow the fuel level to drop much below 1/4 full.

Traditionally when the fuel light comes on you have about 1/16 of a tank left. Depending on weight in your car and weather your driving highway or in town and the speed you are driving as well as the quality of gas and how efficient your car run (MPG) on average just a few miles. I recommend you get some gas before that light comes on. Gauges are never perfect and it may leave you stranded sometime.

A bad gas cap will cause the light to come on, of so replace the cap. The vent is not working if gas is coming back at you. Replace with new.

Dodge nitro fuel cap


You stated "key in and key out", I'm assuming that your car has a locking gas cap. If that's the case, turn the key to the right (clockwise), once the key stops, hold it in the far right position with your right hand, then grab the gas cap with your left hand and turn it clockwise. That should do it. Hope this helps. If I was able to FixYa, please rate my answer. Thanks.
