That is almost exactly correct if you are going 70 mph.

From F to E on the guage is roughly 90 degrees tilted on its side. 90 deg on a clock for the slow hand would be 3 hours. In three hours going 70mph you would have used 210 miles. Which would be close to where you would start to see the fillup light and would stop at a gas station.
