Mine typically begins to glow, off and on, around 150 miles/ 240 km. By the time it is full on and bright, I'm at the roadside performing the Tip-Slosh . . .

I just checked my old( IDK if it is good/bad) one and it checked 1.4k ohm and nothing on capacitance scale .  The resistance wet up to 1.8k after a dunk in gasoline . 0 in cap range .  INSPECT your co

The fuel light on mine would come on at 130-140 mile range.  I can't tell you anymore since the odo reset stem fell out of my speedometer.  I've declined to buy another one and relying on the light now.  

BTW- I purchased a replacement fuel level sensor for my EV and the replacement comes on about 20 miles fewer than the old one did.   I just keep that in mind and know I have a few more miles of gas.

FYI .... everyone needs to reread the entire thread on this subject . It would have saved me a lot of trouble TRYING to figure out how it works .
