miles per tank!

I thought for a damn truck the sizes of these Super Dutys getting bout 17mpg was cool. I just installed S&B Cold Air Intake 75-5028D. I can now get 550 miles out of a tank of fuel. I was getting 500 till I added the intake. How many miles peer tank are you guys getting on your 7.3's?

You really need to specify whether you have a longbed or shortbed... cause there's a 10 gallon difference. 350-400 miles @ half tank is a good tank for me. 550-600 miles and just below a quarter tank, never let it get much lower than that cause I hate to see the bill that follows.
