You're right. What's the difference between .5 to .7 gallon, about another $2.50 or so these days? lol
I've never let it get to that point of having the low fuel light come on in and try to fill the tank whenever I'm between half and a quarter tank full.
I do know that I have to get back to the dealer when I can about that plastic skirt around the filler neck as mine is very loose and tends to shift around. I do see where there is a TSB
out for that condition.
As far as the initial post being about the overall range, that depends on what type of topography you're driving around in, whether you're FWD or AWD and on city or highway. I know that folks living in areas that are generally fairly 'flat' are going to get better mileage then I will having to climb several long, fairly steep grades on a daily basis. (Coming 'down' them on the return trips never seems to make up for the gas expended going 'up' them) Driving around town to work and back for me is about 50 miles a day and I usually get about 200-225 miles before I'm down to about a quarter tank and refill with the AWD version. I'll have a pretty good idea what it will do on the open road in a few weeks when we take it on vacation where the roads tend to flatten out a bit down in the Carolinas along the coast.
