New record (for me) on a tank of gas

'02 SE, 2.25"BB, 31's

Got 259.5 miles BEFORE the light came on. 90% of that is city miles. I'm at 267 right now, but got to head to the tanks as soon as I leave the office. Should get close to 270 miles. YMMV

I get around 230 mi before the light goes on, but on my way home, once got 325 before the light came on which was like 22 mpg, but that was stupidly slow. Id rather drive at 75 and get there 4 hours earlier than save 30 dollars in gas.

I got 11 mpg earlier in the winter...probably had to do with the fact that it was really cold out, I had it in 4 wheel drive for awhile, and I did a LOT of screwing around in the snow (sliding, donuts, climbing snowbanks, etc...)

I once got 618 miles before the warning light came on. But that was in my Jetta Diesel. That's right, 56MPG.

I wont comment on my CJs Milage.
