How in the heck can Mopar possibly claim the range on a tank is 450 miles? I really don't drive mine like a madman. When not being aggressive I always try to keep the RPM from going over 2500. My TPS say I'm at 40 in my tires. I'm getting like 250 miles to the tank with about 75% of my driving being highway.

Since nobody fills up at the same point, the answers won't mean anything.

Why not ask MPG? Then it won't matter if I run my tank to near empty and you never let the tank go below 1/4.

I'm getting 16.7 mpg right now. And that's city/hwy. I got 397 to this tank. Filling up tonight. So I will hit 400. If I ran it to empty it says i will most likely get 443... In and around that

Well something must be wrong with my truck because I'm not getting even 300 miles to a tank.

I just went down to the beach last weekend and it's about a 2 1/2 hour ride from my house... Got 19mpg and that tank I got 460 miles. But as soon as I got home and hit normal roads the mpg went wayyyyyyy down and fast!

I've gotten 13.4-14.0 mpg on my tanks according to the EVIC. If I get on the freeway I can get 20 pretty easy, but I'm in traffic quite a bit to/from the office and that knocks it down QUICK.

It does seem to be going up a tad with each tank though (I only have 2k miles).
