MPG v6

Just curious as to how many miles you guys get on a full tank, with some hard driving and just some cruising. how many miles do you usually get out of the tank?

my 01 with 3.73 gears (manual) would get 21-22 with a 50/50 mix of highway/city driving.... not great.

My 2012 gets 25 with about the same 50/50 mix and 27.X at 75mph, at 70 about 28.X and at 55-60 29.5-30.5~

I commute about 50 miles a day round trip for work 5 days a week. 95% of it is freeway driving at 65-70mph. If I don't do any other driving I can make it home on Friday right at E. So I would say I get about 250 miles a tank. Seems about right.
