When you turn the ignition on does the low fuel light come on with the rest of the warning lights to show its working?

for many reasons you shouldn't even test it out - always fill up at 1/4 tank, at latest.

I try to keep mine above half, lest I burn out my fuel pump...

that and you start to pull garbage into the filter

Can you elaborate on this one?

all gas has some sediment in it - it typically settles out to the bottom and you get very little into the gas itself, but as the fuel level gets lower, you get more solids in it. These are sucked up and end up in your fuel filter.

Decent write up here:

Re: (Bender)

The reason I asked this is because I did a LED swap and every thing works but I have yet to see my low fuel light.
