Poll - AVG MILES traveled on full tank of gas.

I was just wondering what all the 2nd gen owners were getting for mileage on a full tank of gas.

please list :

4 or 6 cylinder and SC/Turbo/none
manual or auto
highway/city
@ what point do you fill your tank?

Figuring out miles per tank is useless.

2009 V6, 6-speed, PreRunner SR5 (21gl tank) and 265/75R16s

75% highway

I fill up at about 315-330-miles, which is a hair under 1/4-tank for me. Have not used the low fuel light yet.

Yes there are many of these and none of them have or really could be tabulated into something meaningful.

'11 Access Cab, 6 cylinder, 6 speed, stock tire size (well 245/70R17 studded snows for winter) and I fuel at 300-315 miles...I normally use the Sam's in town, 25 miles away, so I fuel when buying groceries. I drive on gravel mountain roads every day of the week.

09 AC V6 6MT 4x4, usually mixed driving w/ city + rural, rarely freeway

I usually fill at 200-250 miles, but that's so the level doesn't get too low. My typical fill is 10-13 gallons.

Farthest I've gone on a tank thus far is 330 when the light kicked on. Haven't had an opportunity for a good summer drive.

The one time I miss my honda... after burning 8 gallons I'd be looking for a station in earnest but it would have an easy 350+ miles by that time.

My husband has an I4 5-speed. How did you get your mileage to where it is? He's currently 23-24mpg, even when trying to drive economically. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated
