Ergh, I had to do some conversion, but I get about 18.1 MPG mixed city/hwy. 280 miles or so on 15.5 gallons.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've actually calculated my mileage on a long trip, mostly cause I haven't really gone anywhere...

'09 4.0L 4x4 5 speed.

Edit: in the summer I did have a tank over 500 km a few times.

then how come you can run the gas out of the tank and all over the side of your truck?

i usually get about 220-240 to 17 gallons with 33s and im always hauling stuff and using the four wheel drive.

A few weeks back I found out that once the fuel light comes on, get gas ASAP. I also heard there is a 3-4 gallon reserve, but it didn't seem like it. Ran out of gas on my way home.

I never ran out of gas in my Bronco, and I drove it to damn near empty. I know thats not good for the fuel pump. Not like I did it a lot, just a few times.

I've never had a problem doing that and I've always done it that way with both of the Rangers I've owned. Whenever I put gas in the truck, I fill it up all the way no matter what. The 2004 Ranger I had was filled up like that every single time, and I put over 40K miles on it during my ownership and never had an issue with it. I've put over 20K miles on the current Ranger and no issues so far.

I do my Mustang this way too but I can't do this to my Mom's 02 Mustang because it will set off the check engine light. I guess it all depends on the vehicle.

That's what I get between 240 an 260 miles to a tank. I only got 290 once. But then again, I don't ever let the idiot light come on.

Went on a highway trip and went 310 miles and I still had 1/4 tank left.

~22 mpg. Best mileage I've seen on my truck yet, 09 4.0 4x4 5spd.

Normally I get 250-280 miles. Or 400-450 km.
