Driving 55 mph would probably do that.

milage

I have the V8 and on the highway i got just over 650KM (400 Miles) on a tank. In the city it is much less but around 300 Miles per tank.

The problem is 94 octane here is $1.52 per litre ($5.71 a gallon). I hurts not to drive her the way she wants to be driven.

on average i'd say i get around 320-340 miles per tank. i don't get to do much highway driving.

however on a trip to new hampshire i got over 400 miles on the tank which was awesome. the car is capable of great mileage i just don't get the opportunity to take advantage of it very often.

I was at 320 the other day after a trip on the highways. I still had 40-60 miles of range too, but figured I didn't want to run it to the vapors

the most i can get out of a tank is 403 miles (70-85 mph). that is only on a roadtrip to north carolina from florida. if i fill around town it says a full tank has 268 miles then i can go 40 miles and it'll still say it has 250 miles. this car counts gas wierd, i always joke around and tell people to check out how my car gets more gas while were moving.

I did a road trip from Michigan to D.C. and used cruise control set at appx 73-75 mph the whole way. Got appx 490 miles on a tank. At one point the DIC was estimating 520 miles, but heavy right foot fixed that.

I also see my mileage improved at about the 15k-18k mileage mark, and the warmer weather has started to help it also.
