Something aint right at all there buddy. I get close to 500 if not more on my 38 gallon tank. Your eating fuel somewhere check your oil does it smell like fuel ?

Seems to me like your going uphill one way and down hill the other.

How many gallons per fillup. 1/4 of a tank on the gauge is a lot closer to half a tank gallon wise. At least on both of the trucks I've owned

My first inclination would be make sure your getting a full tank everytime. Take a look at your gauge before you fill up, and estimate how many gallons it should take. If your sitting at a quarter of a tank of fuel, and it takes 12 gallons till the pump clicks off, then your not getting a full tank. And it doesnt matter how much fuel I put in my truck, right after I fuel up, it always reads @ full. Sometimes I just put 100 dollars in at a little less than a quarter, and I know damn well it wont top it off, but my gauges still reads full for a good 40 miles.

I bealeave it's leaking into the oil, and from a quarter tank it will take 22 gallons to fill it up, and on a full tank on the high way I used to beable to go 438 miles on a full tank, all I have done to the truck I's straight pipe exhaust,cold air intake, Egr delete, and iv had the oil cooler replaced, the truck has 157,000 miles on it.
