somethings weird with the gas guage

i dont know if this is how its supposed to be, i havent really read the manual, but...
anyone else notice that theres about 4 gallons of gas in reserve for the tank?
i know its a 19 gallon tank, but whenever i go to fill up after driving a little with the gas light on, it only fills up like 15 gallons.
is it just me or is that weird?
most cars will only have like 2 gallons in reserve. does the fj use 4 in the reserve?
just thought it was weird today while filling up the tank. any comments? should i have read the manual?
tia
