Ain't that the truth! Tired of spending a $50 bill per fill up   >:(

When I got my AV, being a typical male, I just had to test out the 'puter and see how accurate it was.

It is pretty darn close... I within a couple of miles... but luckily I was prepared and had put a gas can in the bed.

My Dakota was way off, when it said I had 0 miles left I could easily get another 30-50 miles.

Now I know... when the AV speaks, I listen!   :B:

Like I said in another post, 113L (about 29 gallons) and the low fuel light was not even on. So what does that say about the tank size? Based on what I've read here, there's 5 gal left in the tank when the light comes on?

Man it sure does suck looking at that receipt and seeing $1.29 a gallon    :C:

Most stations over here are $2.59-2.65 for premium. :E:

ygmn, I never saw this thread last year when you posted, but it seems like your station was pulling a fast one on you.  From what I have heard gas station pumps can be modified so that when you reach say 20 gallons they switch to a different fill rate effectively cheating us out of gas.  They do that b/c when they are sampled for proper measurement they don't ever sample that much gas.

Since your truck has a 31 gallon tank and you took 31.5 gallons that would mean you basically filled up the tank, filler neck filter and lines.  Your truck would have been dead by then.  these tanks are so long they will loose fuel pressure with 1-2 gallons left in them.

I have noticed some local stations will sometimes seem to give an extra gallon than the truck should take.

The most I ever put in was last year in Milwaukee. I spent 100.31. I put in 29 gallons at 3.45 a gallon.

 :o 31.5 gallons!  :o Just a little over a week ago.

I filled up (ie the pump stopped at $75) before leaving for a 7 hour drive.  After the light came on and said I had 40 miles I drove 20-25 miles to get cheaper gas, saved $0.15 per gallon and spend $82.00 to fill it. 

Ill look for the receipt  :4:

As the typing of this post my wife has the Av and she has to fill the tank from under a 1/4 to full. I gather it will be over 30 gallons of fuel and bout $75 to $80 in cost. I have to laugh because she never fills the damn truck and I always get stuck with it empty. Its not like I don't already have to fill 2 other vehicles.

I can vouch for the 5 gallon rule when the light comes on. I think my largest fillup was a little over 29 gallons. I've never done it, but what does it take to get your engine started again after it has sucked air from the fuel tank?  Can you just fillup and crank until it fires?

Just think....  4 liters to a gallon.  At $1.10 per LITER, that's $4.40 per GALLON.

And I thought US gas prices were rediculous.  :E: :E: :E: :E:

Many of you run it far closer.  The most I have put in is 28.6. gal after 564 miles at a cost of $63.50.  The MPG was 19.7 that time.

I went 566 miles once but only used 26.4 gal that time for 21.4 MPG.

My most expensive was $71.  That tank took 24.4 gal after 481 for 19.7MPG.

So I figure I can easily go 600 miles on a tank if I keep to the highway.

Costs me an average of $91 to fill mine up without the idiot light on. :E: Thats here in Orange County. I think the average cost is about 3.23 per gallon right now here. It was more a couple weeks ago for the 4th...

I can get from Pocatello Idaho to Cheyenne Wyoming on one tank. The total distance for that drive is 587 miles. My record is still 625 miles from Blue Earth Minnesota to Gillette Wyoming.

Why would anyone be in Pocatello Idaho to start with  ???   :kidding: 

I've never paid over $75 but I don't let my tank run much lower than 1/4 often.
It was $3.05 around here last week, cost me $68 to fill up.

I believe that owners manual states that the Z71 tank is 31 gallons.
I spent $60.00 to fill half the tank once.
Right now the gas price is 2.80 per gallon.
