My reserve light usually comes on around 180-190. Occasionally just over 200. I live at about 5,000' if that makes a difference. 5,900 miles and averaging about 70 mpg.

I had this problem, as described. I don't think it's the TPS, because 're-flashing the ECU fixed it. Although it was intermittent it hasn't happened since the re-flash, last fall.
