    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.

    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.

    07 AC SR5 2.7 5MT 4x4
    tonneau
    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 :)
