Pretty crap digital counter, other cars I have had count down to the last 5 miles before showing empty.....
On both of my R35s the fuel gauge worked brilliantly, I can't accurately remember how low the "distant to go" went down to but I think it was lower than this, has you just booted it a bit as that will make it drop like a stone. I found the old gauge needle was very accurate and have run it down to into the red zone when very near home before without an issue.
