Yeah, that never works. If you're going off what the manufacturer says it get's for mileage, you'll be left on the side of the road. They always lie. You have to do a mileage test for your self. And if you do it in the summer, it will totally change during the winter.

But he's right ya know, just using your numbers. And that's from topped off to dead empty, you can't even go that far. I know you have a computer or smart phone, so I know you have a calculator. I mean jeeez you can't multiply?

Remember, your fuel pump is inside your gas tank and requires submersion to cool it. Running dead out will cause additional problems you really don't want to mess with. Also, your car will get different gas consumption numbers depending on how you drive (drive slow, use less - drive fast, use more). What are you really trying to determine? Can you get to Grandma's on a single tank?
