It is visible in the 2011 Owner's Manual, but the description is a bit vague. It is probably the warning for 30 mi/50km remaining range.

Once the fuel level has fallen to the reserve zone of approx. 2.1 gallons/8 liters, the remaining indicator lamps change from orange to red, arrow. The tachometer displays the remaining cruising range. An indicator lamp comes on when the remaining range is less than approx. 30 miles/50 km.
