How many miles?

How many miles can you drive on a tank of gas, from full to fill up?

My best I got was 389 miles on one tank of gas. 87 octane. LS V6.

I don't know how you guys do it!

I average about 210-220 out of a tank of gas. With the prices going up so much, I figured this tank of gas I would baby it, shifting at 2000 rpm, putting it in 6th whenever possible. I ended up getting 293 miles out of the tank of gas.

Don't know how you guys are getting over 300 with the V8!

V6 Driven 65% hiway, 35% back roads, avg speed is between 44-50 mph.
Can get consistent 460 miles and up to 510 on a tank!
Conditions change everyones mileage, so city drivers I would probably expect to see MAYBE 300 miles out of a tank(V6)?

I log every mile that I drive, and figure how my mileage is and if I am getting really crappy mileage. Maybe there's something wrong with my engine. Otherwise I use it to write off my mileage for my taxes

Holy crap! How fast do you drive on the highway? I could barely get 400 on a trip from NY to MI and that was ALL highway, was going 75 on avgerage with the cruise on. was only at about 1500 miles on engine, maybe that has something to do with it.
