Default Miles per tank?

Hey guys

I'm very curious. Plz list how many miles you can squeeze out of a tank (when light comes on) and what do you normally average per tank????

Plz list mods you are running on. : )

thats sound like a question "a man who had the light come on, has to go to work and doesn't get paided for 2 more days" would ask. haha.

I get roughly 320 miles per tank in my 90XJ. 3:73gears 31"s Custom bumpers and roof rack, loaded cargo area with tools. stock motor (meticulously maintained), trans, tcase. lots of slow country road driving (not really city, but not really highway) run 1200-1500 rpm on average. never counted miles on the light though.

My 96 is bone stock. I average 240-280 per tank. More if I drive highway. I know I have gone at least 40 miles after the light comes on. I personally think it comes on early. But I almost always get gas when it comes on. No use running it out of gas and wrecking your fuel pump.

About 270 miles. Once the light comes on I have about 6 gallons left. The fuel gauge goes past E when I have about 3 gallons left.

I get 250 until light comes on, 280 on E, but I've never been able to fill it with more than 17.5 gallons with a 20 gallon rank. Bone stock, until I finish my lift today and mount my 31's
