my best was 134 miles on the first 1/4 tank. That was before the supercharger. My best with that is 110 miles on the first 1/4 tank. Granted that is just the first 1/4 tank but i can usually tell if im getting good or bad milage but how far the first 1/4 tank goes.

I can go about 130 on quarter tank, and almost 430 on full. I only have a K&N drop in, chip, exhaust, and lowering springs. Plus I am at 4500 feet above sea level.

i do the same thing. its actually better for ur fuel pump. if u wait to get gas until the light comes on and keep doin it, its bad for ur fuel pump.

My best at the 1/4 mile mark has been around 130 miles. I usually fill up when there is about 1/4 left as mentioned above^ But I'm usually at or about 280-300 miles at that point. I have all the bolt-ons plus raised compression and cams.

I <3 my car
