oh, that 330ish a tank is all city, and it's pretty close to that all the time. i fill it when my light comes on and always seem to spend close to the same amount when i fill it up. i know i can't fill it up the same every time, but it's close.

The only time I see 200 miles to a tank is when there is highway driving involved. I wish my engine would just blow so I could get a new one.

Borrow a GPS?

I usually get between 210 and 230 miles per tank, doesn't really matter if it's highway or city it stays the same.

I have never really tried for gas mileage though, I typically drive it like it's stolen

I usually get between 250 and 300 no matter how I drive. When I ran my brother's 33x12.50 Big Horns, it would hit the 3/4 mark at about 50 miles.
