Precondition and Low Fuel Don't Mix?

This may have been noted elsewhere, but I didn't see it on a search of the forum or the Owner's Manual. I returned from a road trip on Monday with the fuel tank reading "LOW". I had no other long trips planned, so I didn't prioritize filling up the tank. For the next couple of days, remote start preconditioning would not work regardless of whether the battery was well charged or if the car was plugged in (240V). As soon as I filled up the car, remote start worked fine.

Anyone else noticed this?

I have a Gen 1 and it has never happened to me and many others that run EV only keep very little gas in the tank. It is possible that in your personalization menus you have "Engine Assist Heat Plugged In" set to ON. Set it to OFF and see if that changes things for you.
