Miles per tank

I know it's wrong to figure out MPG but how many miles are you guys getting per tank full?

Please state size of the tank and if the truck has any mods to it; tuner, DPF/EGR deleted, lift, bigger rims/tires, etc, etc.

Thanks

Re: Miles per tank

I Think it's time For the Mods to make a Sticky for the ONE and ONLY MPG Thread

If you want to Know How many miles per tank,just X The MPG to Tank Gallons

Theres to many veriables to Nail Down a Number that fits so you can say ,Oh yea the 6.7 gets 16 in town and 20 highway.... Just not Gonna Happen!

Motors are a Little different,Each Trucks set-up,each drivers driving habits,The weather for the day...as in head wind......You get the Idea....

Re: Miles per tank

Re: Miles per tank

I was looking how far one could go on a tank full. Not some I get xx MPG.

I guess it's real hard to post how many miles one gets out of tank full then we can guessimate the real MPGs one gets.

Example: If one get 15 MPG daily driving, so that would mean with a 38 gal tank, the range would 570 miles. But all know that we can't get all 38 gals out so I'll guessimate around 500 miles.

The way I figure fuel efficiency is by how many miles I get per tank full. When I re-fuel, I re-set my trip odometer. If I know I can go 500 miles on a tank and when I check my odometer, it show me 100 miles and I'm down to a 1/2 tank, then I know there's a problem somewhere. And my driving habits are the same.

i understand that completely, but from truck to truck the tank sizes can surprisingly differ by ~.5-1 gallon, maybe more.. so comparing tank driving range sometimes isn't the best method if comparing multiple trucks... but if you're only looking at your own truck, then yes that's a GOOD method and i also use it, but the again... the tanks can shrink and grow a tiny bit... on some days, from a bone-dry tank, it can vary by 1-2 gallons for both tanks combined.. its strange but it happens

I Guess what i'm trying to say is,The Info you are asking for is useless!

If all truck where the same then the info would have some use to you, But while one motors stronger than another, or one truck may use a couple more gallons of DEF than the other,The info is of No good to you the way i see it,Cause if you read these threads you see some are doing Great ,while others want to sale ,as i said IMHO Theres to many veriables to Nail Down a Number that you could use to judge your truck Performance,each truck will Very

But I Agree!

Re: Miles per tank

I have a 2011 F350 CCSB with the powerstroke. I filled up the other day, 26 gallon tank with my miles until empty reading 5 and it took 21 gallons. Does anyone know where Ford is getting a 26 gallon tank from? There is no way that the fuel lines, etc. hold 5 gallons of fuel
