figure out the car's average gas milage and how much you fill it for...
that way, you can ignore the retarted fuel gauge and go by the trip odometer...the gas light is an idiot light anyway...it comes on at just under 1/4 tank in my millenia S...
look in your owners manual - i know for a fact they will tell you the gas tank capacity - probably at least 20 gallons...(i do not own a tribute...check the specifications part of the manual)
if you get 18mpg average, and fill up with 16 gallons, fill up at around 290 miles...keep a record of what you filled up with and write the miles on the trip odometer on your receipt before resetting it, always fill it, and then after a few weeks of typical driving, you'll know exactly when to fill up
