DTE Miles till empty. What do you get?

Brand new GC 12' X-package

I fill up I get 362 miles, friend fills up with his GC 12' Limited and get 460.

He says its the same tank size. Any explanations ?

P.S. Remote start A/C climate control issue as well.

Thanks guys.

I actually noticed that when I did a road trip and I filled up, the DTE was higher than when I just drive around the city. Maybe the computer recognizes your driving pattern.

How many miles on his odometer vs. yours & are you still in your engine break-in period? If so I'd think your MPG should increase as your engine settles in.

We work at the same job. He purchased his a month prior to mine. I'm at about 700 miles. NO hemi for either. I drive very conservative.

Re: DTE Miles till empty. What do you get?

DTE will be based on most recent Average miles per gallon.

+1 on this. If I have been getting 17mpg driving around town and fill up my DTE is way lower than if I was on a highway trip Gettin 24-25mpg and I fill up

How about when you reset your gas mileage ? wouldn't that show right away, I don't believe it matters the way you drive. Your tank hold so much no?

Re: DTE Miles till empty. What do you get?

I get an average of 15-19 mpg depending who drive my wife or myself. Every time I fill up its no more then 360 dte. So I don't know if that's true.
