I have a 2014 Frontier SV 4X4.
Anyone have any idea how much gas is left in the tank when the low fuel light comes on?

do you have some dice?

If you search a bit you'll find many threads that have discussed this. But the takeaway is its spitballing... Neither the light nor the Range Till Empty display are terribly accurate. On the rare occurrence I go till the light I I fill 15-18 gallons.... You can also tell yourself by driving till the light pops, then hurry to a station and fill 'er up...
Worst time I had light came on & I filled 19 gallons.

2015 SV - if fill ASAP upon low fuel light illumination will usually put in just under 17 gallons...meaning a 4.1+ gallon reserve. I round that down to 3 gallons (or another ~50 miles IFF needed) for safety's sake and peace of mind.
YMMV -heh-

On my 16 SV I figure somewhere between 4 and 5 gallons as while the tank is claimed to be 21.1 gallons when I fill up I never attempt to top off the tank in that the first time the nozzle stops on its own I call it quits and think to myself that's 20 gallons in the tank. Each time I fill up at the light or soon thereafter I'm putting in around 16 odd gallons...
