I get around 230-240 a tank (running it past empty with the gauge light on) and that's with 4.10's, 35's and a 3.0

In my 03 XLT supercab, automatic 2wd. I can squeeze 400 out a tank but I'm looking hard for a gas station
On my 02 EDGE supercab I can get about 360 per tank
Best to date was 24. on the EDGE a few years ago
both are flex fuel, XLT has a underdrive pulley, EDGE has flowmaster SISO exhaust

im getting about 200 miles a tank as well, but i just figure its because my truck is lifted and has bigger tires, and a grille guard the weighs the front down.

I'm sure if I tried i could get 300, but I usually get around 200-225 at 1/4 tank. Thats stock with just exhaust. I like going fast too much to care about gas mileage.

I have a 19.5 gallon tank, and usually fill up when I get down to 1/4 of a tank left and have around 260-280 miles on a tank by then, but I have ran it almost all the way down and have gotten 340 miles out of a tank once!!! But, I can get 320 miles easy!!!

I have the big 20 gallon tank. I can easily get atleast 400 miles on a tank. I am guessing 430 maybe? I don't want to push it, I usually fill up with about 375 on the odometer.

I calculate my mileage at about 22mpg usually, although I have seen 23.5mpg.

I drive 75% on [email protected], and 25% city.

The powertrain on my truck is basically stock. So are my wheels tires and rideheight. It is a manual transmission.

In the summer, all highway miles, about 330 miles to a tank.
In the winter, all city miles, about 200.

If it acts like its running out of fuel then change the fuel filter first.

I have the 01 xlt and i just got 12.6 (corrected) and I also drive like an old lady!
note that I have the 4.0L sohc 4x4 auto with 4.10
and i usually get 14-15 city 18 hwy which is what it is rated at
Also i am current on all maintenance syn oil, fuel filter, seafoamed, plugs, wires, fuel injector cleaner every 6,000 mi.
I have 32" tires but that made no noticeable difference in my mileage
Note: mpg=(miles driven/gal. of gas burned)
not by how big your tank is, but since that is the question, i usually get near 200 when the light comes on and i have the 19.5 gal tank.
So my question is there anyone else with a simliar set-up, what is your mileage?
