How much mile are you other luders getting for a full tank. Dam I'm only getting like 225-250 for a full tank of gas, that seems lower than when I first got the car.

I know that I should get less cause it's colder with more dense air which my ecu will put send more gass but dam not that much. Also yeah when it's cold I do start the car for 15min before driving to work.

So any thought and what do you other guys get for totaled miles.

wow, thats pretty low bro. i get at least 300 every tank.
i would imagine SOME of it would be due to warming it up everyday, but not 75 miles/3 gallons'ish-worth.

mine is 5 gen. Full tank is about 230-270 90% city, 10 % HWY. (22-25 mpg)And I drive hard.

If you have at least 20 mins driving a day while the oil temp is not yet at its efficient temp, your mpg will be lower.

I also found that low engine oil will also lower mpg.

That's seems about right. I'll usually get at least 250 miles out of it but not much more. Only once did I manage to get to 300 miles but that was some serious highway miles.

i get around 260-280 per tank, but that's all city stop and go driving. i can get around 340ish if it's all highways.

one way to improve your gas mileage is to get new spark plugs, fuel filter, etc.

Get the turbonator baby! More horsepowers and better gas mileage!!!1!1one :p

Haha just kidding... please dont get it. I can get about 300ish on a full tank, and that's without topping it off and filling it back up before my fuel light comes on.

i have an 01 5th gen base and i used to get 300 every single time with 12.5 gallons in my tank. But after I got NKG one-step colder spark plugs and I cleaned my fuel injectors I've been getting almost 400 per tank. Oh and I also put in the gas treatment from STP after every oil change (around 3750 miles per oil change).

On average i get about 245-265 miles on a full tank. That's in mixed hwy/city driving with a lot of stop and go. The best i've been able to achieve is 28mpg on almost entirely hwy driving.
