Best Mileage to a Tank

Today I got 649 miles before I had to fill up. Half the time I had my hubs locked in. I was I'm 4x4 for a quarter of time and I was going 80mph for 150 miles.

Either that was your Dodge, your PSOM is way off or you have a aftermarket tank because there is no way you got 649 miles on a single stock 18 or 19 gallon tank.

The best I got out of my rear tank is 230 before my gauge said E but I'm 97% sure that my rear tank doesn't read right. I can't remember best I've gotten on my front

The gauge means Nothing, you need to fill the tank and see how many gallons used


I consistently see 15-16mpg. That is all city or all highway w cruise set @65. And I also drive like grandma

'95 F250 EC 4x4. Mixed driving, averaging between crawling along at 20 mpg (stop & go) and up to 65-70 mph for short bursts.

I get around 16.25 mpg, last check I hope that imporves once my Cat "falls off".

585 out of the rear 38 gallon tank with probably some more to go but I don't like to take too many chances. I've ran out of gas on the interstate nearly 10 times because "too expensive here, I'll make it to the next one...."

Then before you know it, especially in god forsaken Texas, "next gas station - 100 miles"

Yea I know I'm just saying by the time the gauge went from F to E it said 230. I know there's more fuel in it but I don't want to fully run it empty to stay on the safe side. I usually only run my front tank anyway
