With a e-fan, crank underdrive, 10k miles on the truck, and mostly interstate 70mph driving I've got a best of 405miles so far. Put 19.3gallons in it too.

I haven't had the guts to make it to 400 miles on my tank yet, maybe I'll carry some gas in a can and try it out. I've had times where I've nearly hit 300 miles at 1/4 full, but that is driving about 90 miles a day at around 70-80mph.

i've gotten 325 miles out of my '01 4x4 4.0, which is not the most aerodynamic thing on the road: rollbar, lights, brushguard, 2 spare tires, 265 tires with steel wheels... so i was impressed with the 325 miles. then, back in the city, i get less than 200. :(
