How Many Miles to the Tank?

Just curious as to how many miles you are all getting per tank of gas. I know most of us don't get down to E, but I've been close (0-1 mile DTE on the computer).

For me...

Motor: 4.0L
Gearing: Haven't checked
Tires: 30's
T-case: NP249
Miles to Tank: 300-350
Average Overall MPG: 14.5-15

I've always heard this would ruin the tc. Removing the driveshaft, not the heavy foot that is.

I'll get 17-19 stock 5.2, 2" BB stock tires, drop-in k&n. Quadradrive.

Only ruins the 249 through the 93-95yrs. 96-98, you can remove the front DS with no harm to the TC.
