What is the maximum miles you have traveled on one tank?

Of course this is only a question for those of you who keep track of such things. I am a MPG fiend and I keep a detailed Excel file of data related to any and all things MPG related. Currently my record for one tank is 377.9 miles and no I didn't run the tank dry or anything, the low fuel light hadn't even come on. I'm just curious for those who keep track what your highest mileage per tank is.

Right close to 400. All but 30 were highway miles, just cruising back from college to home, then frmo home back to college...

NEVER been able to get close to 400 after that though... more along the lines of 330 to 350 if I was lucky.

I think the longest I went was around 400. That was all highway. Drove from SoCal to Tucson and decided to stop in Pheonix to get gas. I had about an 1/8 of a tank still.

^^^Uh dudes (matt and bailey), this is the SVT Owners lounge...no stockers allowed. Nah, just messing...

I think my best was around 350 miles, and the light had been on for 20-30 miles.

I did 368.7 with about 10 miles with the fuel light on. Part of the ride was through the White Mountains in NH. Lots of steep inclines

damn..in an SVT?! The most i've gotten out of my SVT is 280 miles so far. That was on a road trip back from LA. Traffic out here cruises around 85 though so that is probably part of the reason it's so low. In my ZX3 2.3 I got 400 miles on a vegas trip!
