Justin drives 66 miles a day and average roughly 2 gallons per 60 miles. With Justin info, he gets about 360 miles a tank.

Miles per tank isn't a great measurement of gas mileage ... Gas gauges, especially Ford gas gauges are extremely inaccurate.

With that said, I've averaged, per tank, as much as 46 in the past. That was when the car was still new and breaking in.

I expect to see 48 out of it this summer. Mind you, I have to take it REAL easy and drive like a grandma having a slow day ... but it's worth it when I can drive 150 miles on 3.5 gallons of gas.

Yeah the better you drive the higher that start number is. last night when i filled up it said 373 miles to E. back last summer when i drove right ive seen it read 452 miles to E (=
But it is just a rough estimate. for the accurate number just set your trip meter right when you fill up from the light. then when you hit the light again divide your total trip miles by the amount of gas on the last receipt. i think im going to buy me a scan gauge two(=

this is my kind of topic.
i have no engine mods at all, and my last tank i got 34.6 MPG. I drive 96 miles round trip per day back and forth to work, and 72 miles are freeway. i drive right at 65 in the AM on the freeway and in the afternoon its all over the place, i have many elevation changes here in charlotte, so i cant keep the RPMS low all the time. Also i hit traffice quite often.
Im have to fill up this afternoon, so ill take a picture. when i buy gas near work its 3.47 today for regular.
