so, i just has this debate with a coworker of mine...
he said, that for ANY gas car/truck (non-hybrid, non-diesel) in city driving that you will only get 290-310 miles out of a tank of gas. when ever i hear someone qualify a statement with "any", "always", "never", "all", "none" etc... i have to question it. so i went to a bunch of automaker websites and came up with several examples that show better than 310 miles on a tank in city driving: (smallest/best fuel economy engines)
scion TC = 350 miles (25mpg x 14 gallons)
nissan sentra = 377 miles (26mpg x 14.5 gallons)
ford f-150 = 390 miles (15mpg x 26gallons)
toyota tacoma = 420 miles (20mpg x 21 gallons)
nissan altima = 460 miles (23mpg x 20 gallons)
so, i showed him these numbers and he came back with "well, thats in a perfect automaker reported world with little traffic, no wind, perfectly inflated tires, etc..."
he would just not budge or admit that maybe he was mistaken.
so what do you guys think?
have any of you ever owned a car/truck that got more than 300 miles out of a tank of gas in city driving?
