Reserve tank (JTD)

I have a 3dr 147 JTD courtesy car for the day while mine is in the garage for her 1st service.

Never driven a diesel before but this bella is quick. Unfortunately, as usual there is not much fuel in the courtesy car and I am wondering how miles I can get out of her as it's now running on reserve fuel. Any ideas anyone??
I have to get her back to the garage this evening (40 miles @ normal legal speed wink ). Do you think there is sufficient juice to travel that distance??

I do about 100 km on the reserve (when tank light is light). Approx. 40-50 km before "the end" the trip computer will warn you that you have limited range.
