2013 have a 16 gallon tank...I was reading my manual lol. My 13 GT has been getting 23hwy...and I dont do to much in town driving but I have been babying it right now and learning to drive a stick better. It says dont rely on fuel estimates until the car has 1000 miles on it...I have 400 on mine right now. Just put my first tank of gas in it and it cost me about 51 bucks at 3.77 gallon. Not bad at all

I believe when you hit 0 there is still over a gallon left for the fuel pump. Could be wrong.

Very little of each. I get about a 3 weeks out of a tank. Put it this way, since my last oil change 4 months ago, I've only put around 1200 miles in it lol.

Yeah 11+ you can run to zero and still have near 2 gallons left. My 2007 tundra is the same way. 0 miles left doesn't mean empty. You are just asking for trouble running past that.

I posted this on a different thread, but here is what can be done if you have a long enough stretch of freeway with no ability to go fast. This was Rockford, Illinois to Columbus, Ohio (just short of it), most of the drive as 65-70 mph. I have a 13 GT manual with 3.31 rear.

I've got a 2011 gt premium auto with steeda cai full exhaust boss intake and 93r bama tune and get right at 325 miles on a full tank. And around 22 highway and 17 city. Unless I play with the pedal, then it's way less.
