Communication with atc for diversion

If I am 5th in line to landing and notice that my fuel is dangerously low and decide to divert to an alternate airport, what message should I send to atc?

Just send “emergency fuel” under emergency requests, and the ATC will give you priority.

What is that? Never heard of it

It comes up with I believe 3 minutes or less of fuel remaining

Actually it’s 3% remaining, and you have to be flying for at least an hour

But I’ve done it on a 30 minute flight from KSAN to KLAX

To divert, adjust your flight plan and request flight following to your new destination
