How many miles have you driven on a single tank?

I got my 2014 Limited a little over a month ago. My current record is 509 miles. I think I'm going to beat it as I'm nearing the end of my current tank. Probably 70% city 30% highway. Always on Eco.

Range was 728 on a fill-up (according to the computer), I did 690 bladder-busting miles before refilling - drove from home up to the cabin and back down to Wausau.

Re: How many miles have you driven on a single tank?

Since the gas in your tank helps cool your fuel pump, it's probably not a good idea to run your tank down to fumes very often. This might reduce the life of your fuel pump. This has been discussed at length on the web.

Re: How many miles have you driven on a single tank?

1,111km (690 miles), I squeezed 90l of fuel into the tank, so that meant there was at least 2l left in the tank and could have done another 25km until fully empty.

Re: How many miles have you driven on a single tank?

Another Diesel driver here: On two occasions (different fillups, same 2500+ mile round trip) this summer, I had the miles traveled on the tank + range break 900 miles.

As far as filling up goes, I know I have gotten well into the 600's on a tank, but not yet 700. I try not to let it get below 1/4 tank too often...

Re: How many miles have you driven on a single tank?

On my recent trip, I went 558 miles on one leg, filling it when the light came on and it still had 3.5 gallons left.
