I don't know about a 'reserve section' to the tank, but I do know that if you have the 112L tank, it will start to have draw issues around 108L as the bottom of the tank has a sump for the pump and it can only pull from a certain height, after that it's sucking fumes and air; this means that you will never be able to pull the full 112L from the tank.

When I hit the 'E' I normally have another 100kms in my tank, so it depends on how far you normally drive your truck before filling it back up, as a rule I normally top up at 1/8 and get 90-100L into the tank; and in winter I never let it get below half unless I'm driving it a long distance.
