4 Bangin, Fuel Sippin, Full Tank Challenge!

Who can get the best mileage (total miles) out of a tank of gas in any 4 bangin Taco? Young, old, pretty, rust-bucket, street queen, offroadin' machine, whatever.

Condition: Fill er up, reset the trip tik, drive her til the yellow gas light is on. Driving habits, conditions, etc don't matter.

Take photgraphic evidence of mileage once the yellow gas light has illuminated and post up.

No prizes or nothing, just for fun and bragging rights.

Ehh..write down your odometer mileage when you fill up and then take note once again when the light comes on.

i.e. Fill up at 45,000 miles, light comes on at 45,360. Got about 360 miles out of that tank.

I'd hope everyone would play along honestly Pr3runn3r.

thats kind of hard to compare since a lot of people have a lot of different mods... I think for what mods I got getting 24-25 mpg religiously is GREAT! so I am the winner in my own mind lol

My best tank for miles was 751 miles on 20.401 gallons or 36.8 mpg.

My best tank for mpg was 681 miles on 18.08 gallons or 37.7 mpg, but that's a little further than when the light came on.

Maybe I should stay out of this one.

I just filled up for the first time in 18 days. Like i said, i dont have a trip meter so i just write down my mileage on the gas receipt and stick it in my door pocket. I use my truck 100% for work [hauling a 6x10 trailer with a 26hp 54" deck tractor, and the bed has 2 push mowers, 2 weeedeaters, blower, and a bunch of other things].

I got 335 miles on 15.5 gallons of gas which is 21.6 miles per gallon loaded with equipment the entire time.


The truck has a 2 inch lift and 285/70/17 tires [33 inch tall]. 4 banger 5 speed manual all stock engine and drive train.







And this is what i drive when I'm not working. 55 miles per gallon running it hard.

That's awesome! I've never filled over 18.5 gallons. I think I'd be pretty nervous running the tank down to half a gallon.

My personal best was 533 miles on 17.249 gallons or 30.9 MPG. I know I can break 600 on a tank, but I rarely push it that far. And when I'm on a road trip I tend to speed a lot to make better time. Otherwise, I know I could get 32-33 MPG pretty easily.

I did that 751 just for fun since I have found the scangauge to be pretty accurate, no sweating it really. Usually my fill up is between 17.5 and 19 gallons.

And yes if you could do a full tank at 60 mph you well exceed 32-33 mpg. I can handle 60 mph or less for my daily commute and leisurely trips around here, but on serious road trips it's up to 5-10 over the speed limit and down to the 25-26 range.

That's interesting...Usually on road trips I drive 75-85 MPH with a full bed of gear and I get 27-29 MPG. Last trip was 1500 miles to Canada and back towing a jet ski and I got 24-25 MPG doing the same speed.

I too can handle driving 50-60 during a 25 mile commute. But if I have a 12-14 hr drive ahead of me, I'm going much faster.

We'll see what I get on this tank just driving ~7.5 miles at a time to work and school. So far, 440 miles and no gas light.
