450 miles out of a tank That's usually about 18 Gallons and I have a 22 gallon tank. I love this car! I went to Sioux falls over the weekend for my Buddy that goes to college out there's first party of the year. I made it out thei and hald way back on one tank of gas and was just a tad over 28 MPG. My truck, on the same trip is one and a half tanks out there and one and ahalf back.

For highway driving I can easily get 350 miles to a tank (19.5gallons). My truck gets amazing highway miles for a 4x4 with the 4.0. My best ever was apporximately 21-22 mpg that was running the tank down to the fumes. That is with an auto 4.0 4x4. Man I love my truck. Truck is stock except the K&N drop in and the Gibson exhaust.
