Gas tank/remaining miles

More than once, using the remaining miles indicated on the computer,I've ran my gas tank down into single digits before filling up. Today, with two miles left on the screen, it only took 5.5 gallons to fill it. Assuming the stated 6.3 gallon fuel capacity is reasonably accurate, I had .8 of a gallon left before empty. I could have gone at least another 30 miles, not 2. Has anyone else experienced this? Is the computer this inaccurate or is the tank significantly smaller than stated?

Thanks for your response.
Larry
