Miles per tank

I recently got a Ex with 196,000 miles. Its an 01 with the 7.3. It has a 44 gallon tank and I'm wonder what miles other people are getting per tank. I have yet to take the tank down near empty but I seem to get maybe 550-575 and then fill up with about 38 gallons. The only mod I have done yet is a DIY Intake. Still working up money for gauges, exhuast and a chip.

When it was warmer I was getting 17-18 on highway and 15 in the city, but now that it is colder out it has seemed to drop. I have a filling that my ebpv might be sticking...

I'm taking a long trip for thanksgiving from philly to MI and I hope I can get there using less then two tanks.

But I'm just wondering what other Ex owners are getting...
Thanks

Another question I got, is how close is the Miles Till Empty reading on the info-center to being correct.

The trucks only have a 29 gallon tank? Wow makes me wonder why they put a big 44 gallon tank in the EX makes a big weight difference when full compared to empty.

I can get about 476 miles before the "hey dumbazz, you need fuel" light comes on. So I am figuring if I ran it dry, which I do not plan on doing, that I could probably stretch it out to 525 if I had to. I have the 38 gallon tank.
