Miles per tank range - anyone tracking?
I'm just curious as I keep seeing "extended range" of 500 miles per tank, and I was curious what the real world average is. Anyone keeping track?

Re: Miles per tank range
When I bought my wife's WK2 v6 we put about 300 miles on it bringing it home and i only used about a half a tank... I was getting a little over 23 mpg.. It was hwy driving the whole way running about 80... It's got a 24 gallon tank

With very mixed highway and city driving I'll get around 350 with my Hemi.

Re: Miles per tank range
Im always around 450 miles and it usually has about 3 or 4 gallons left in the tank. Pentastar

330-350 Miles per tank for the Hemi running on 89.. But I have larger tires and full skid plate package so I guess my GC is a bit heavier..

Re: Miles per tank range
Last two tanks were 80% city, 20 highway. Seems like 375 miles was the average between the two.
On a road trip, about 3k miles round-trip, averaged ~475 miles per tank. But that was all highway.
Wk2 hemi/89 octane.

I average 23-24 at speed on the Interstate on 87 PON. It will go farther than you will without stopping.

Phoenix to LaLaLand piffle bet we could go from Tucson to LA onna tank. Maybe even from Bisbee. (ref advt from '73)

That's it: The Bisbee to Queen Mary Memorial Trophy Dash. No stops allowed !

Have been averaging 20mpg mixed highway and city with the V6. Since it has gotten colder I am averaging 18mpg. So anywhere between 350-425 on a tank here in north central WV

Re: Miles per tank range
I'm always between 500-550 miles per tank

Re: Miles per tank range
I have the V6 in my 2012 Overland and with far suburban miles with zero highway I usually fill up between 400 to 450 miles to the tank and fill it back up with usually 21-23 gallons of fuel.

Re: Miles per tank range - anyone tracking?
Don't even have a clue how many miles it gets per tank. I fill it when it gets low, don't care about the mileage.
