17 US Gallons it is for all 5th Gen Accords (that is unless the bottom of the tank was pushed up and you lost some volume)

375 miles on 17 US Gallons @ 22mpg (winter-time)
440 miles on 17 US Gallons @ 26mpg (Summer/warmer)

At 130 miles on 7 Gallons, you're only getting 18mpg. But really, how far can you go in Smithfiekd? Click the image to open in full size.

If your present mileage (18mpg) holds true for longer driving intervals (like a drive to Georges' in Galilee, RI) you can expect to suck fumes after 306 miles. I suspect your suppressed mileage is due primarily to short trips. Longer trips should see better economy (If they ever get around to removing this D...m Snow)

Snow, what is that? Hahaha. You may be laughing at me in the summer 95 degrees, with 100% humidity. I'm sweating, just thinking about it. Click the image to open in full size.

No, the low fuel light is warning you that if you keep running the tank down to where the light comes on you are going to replace a fuel pump and if it's a 5th gen or older you gotta pull the tank.
