mine will ddrain quick to half a tank and get me 150 miles, but the second half always seems longer to me but i still get 150 miles out of it...i usually pay attention and honestly at every marker, i get 25 miles and its calculate to 300

Thank you snrusnak. I know it can go about 500 miles on 2 tanks of gas. So I don't think it's to bad.

377 miles to the tank, or, 15.1 mpg on a 25 gallon tank.

2002 1500 4.7 liter. 2" level with 33" Terra Grapplers. All else that would make a difference is stock.

Oh, I used to get only 14.5 but tried a different kind of mod that seemed to work, I lost 85 pounds lol.

In my '08 1500 with 20's I can get 15.6-16 if I keep it under 70 mph on a good day Way less than what the dealer told me I'd get when we bought it brand new, but it looks good so it doesn't really matter now does it hahaha
When I have my winter 17's on, I get about 19 mpg! Good incentive to keep those on all year round but my 20's are cooler, so they go back on in the summer

last 3 tanks i have filled up after 150 miles. everytime i have gotten 12 mpg. but then again i have a pretty aggressive shift shedule on the SC. so i would rather rip it off the line when sittin next to a "sports car" that looks at me funny than worry about mpg. i love this truck and all the gas it guzzles.

On my rt I drive it usually only to and from work. 20 miles one way. Half city half freeway. Gets anywhere from 15-16 mpg mixed. The day I hit 16 It was like 80 degrees. Usually over 100 degrees. And that's all grandma driving.
