US 201 tanks are speced at approximately 55 liters or 14.5 gallons of which 7 liters (1.8 gallons) is reserve. Just after my fuel warning light illuminates (about the time the guage hits the "E" mark) my car will take about 12.5-12.7 gallons (47.3 - 48.0 liters), and I recall servicing with a maximum of 13.2 gallons.

The light may be intermittent for a few miles before it finally stays illuminated. The fuel capacity on US spec cars may be less than in other markets, due to the "vapor dome" that is required for the US evaporative emissions control system.
