It's hard to believe I've had my 06 for almost 10 months. I still love it, but still regret not getting a 4.0 and manual tranny.

yup, im getting roughly 300miles to the tank. Though I'm not sure what size the tank is. My light came on as I was driving home from work so I stopped to get gas. It took 15.9 gallons to fill up. So depending on what Ford left as a reserve after the light would tell ya how big the tank is.

Congrats. Im sure you will be saying that you love it for a long time.

My first month with my new to me 96 cost me $1700. $900 for the cap I wasnt sure about getting, and $800 for the tranny that if I wouldnt have already paid for the cap wouldve been a less expensive month

good question, I don't know, and I don't intend to find out, especially in the cold winter here in Utah

When it gets good and warm I'll see how far I can push it, but its a point for me to never run the tank dry.
