Set one of your trips each time you fill up. ( I reset the "A Trip " each fill up. I find the gallons used to be fairly close to the actual amount I can put into the tank. On several occasion when I've been paying cash, and I've had to pre-pay and the clerk ask how much do you want. I've give the trip reading and been almost exactly right for the amount I needed to prepay.
With a little practice you will figure out how much is left you tank when it reads empty.
For that matter, You could put a 5 gal jug in the bed and just drive till you run out and see how far past empty you can go. If you run out, Basically treat it like you just changed the fuel filters. KOKO 6 to 10 times and then try cranking.
The one time I ran out, My truck said, 1 mile to empty and pulled into the fuel stop and the engine died as I was idling waiting for the car in front to pull out. I had to push my truck forward the car length to get up to the pump and it took 37.5 gallons. So I was dry.
