fuel tank capacity

In my owners manual for my 159 it shows fuel tank capacity as 70L AND with a reserve of 10L.
Does this mean the total tank capacity is actually 80L?
Does this mean when the needle hits empty I still have 10L in reserve? (I wouldn't have thought so and not keen to try test this for obvious reasons!)
I'm certain it does not mean 10L remaining once the orange "almost empty" lamp turn on as I have, on many occasions, filled my tank up when the needle is on empty. When I fill at this point I regularly use 65-68L of fuel.
