Maximum fillup....

What's the most gas you've ever put into your gas tank?

Just put in 12.95 gallons (tank rated at 13.2)

No idea, I find it hard to pay attention to amount... when all I see is the price.. it just keeps going up, and my wallet just keeps screaming.

I've filled as much as 12.6. I know that's bad to do, but I desperately trying to get home from a 396 mile trip and did it one tank. I think that's pretty good with my mods.

Like pretty much everyone, I pay more attention to the price than gallons but I think the most I've put in was 12 or close to 13 gallons.

12.9 gallons and 449 miles on the tank, thought about driving another mile but the gauge was twice the needle width below Empty.

^^ holy crap how'd you get such good mileage?

I've put in 14 gallons in my car before. I've run out of gas a couple times a mile or so from the station. I push my luck almost every tank. I hate having to fill up.

yeah, I've been known to push my luck trying to squeeze a whole week of driving back and forth to work out of a tank. But I've only run out once! And even then I was close enough to my house to walk back and grab the gas-can for the lawnmower :)

The most I have put in the tank was 13 gallons, and that was after making it 366 miles on one tank driving back from Kentucky.

12.22 gallons, after a run from Kearney, NE to Longmont, CO on Labor Day. Only took me just 4 hours 20 minutes to make that drive, (just under 358 miles). Did it non-stop, (except for stop signs and traffic signals), On I-80 and I-76, I had the cruise set at just over 85 mph, (It was all Interstate except for the last 35 miles). My MPG was 29.17.
