    It was a one time thing, I just wanted to see how much I could get. The average temp was about 55 all week while driving.

    With these low temps and the winter mix of fuel I dropped about 40 miles off of what I used to get out of a tank

    Nice to see what I should be capable of.
    How much did it take to fill it up at 401 miles?

    It only took a little over 19 gallons so I could have gone another 20-30 miles.

    I'm sorry, but I have to call BS here. No way you are going 420-430 miles on a tank of gas with the 4.0.

    I think someone is putting gas in your tank at night as a goof.

    I have seen other people post similar results. I didn't feel like arguing. Thanks for the validation!

    I think I have to call BS too!!!...the most I've seen in my 2010 is 265 miles...and I was nervous about driving to the gas station because it had been on E so long. I don't care what anyone says about winter gas...there is no way it causes a difference of 125 miles per tank. You guys must coast down hills and drive like old ladies! Someone help me understand how there can be this much disparity. I want to believe it.

    400 is very possible for an 4.0 auto. I'm stoked that I finally hit 20mpg. 353 miles at 17.6 gallons with a DC 4.0 4x4 and a manual!

    To reach that kind of mileage on a tank obviously requires some special circumstances such as a tank were you are driving primarily on a highway at a speed of 60-65 etc. If you drive your truck in town primarily, it is unlikely that you can get much over 300 miles per tank, I consistantly see this kind of mileage and typically do not run my tank down to vapors.
