I was at a gas station today filling up my Tahoe after emptying the tank as much as possible. (I gave the guy $100 and got $7 back at $4.10 per gallon), I just realized I did 320 miles w/ a full tank of gas. This is the most miles I got since I got my Tahoe in 04/2007.

I did 50/50 highway and local between Los Angeles Downtown and Pasadena.

You do know running your tank "as low as possible" is not good, right???

nice!
I filled up yesterday and it was 101.00$ and I had gotten 338mi from the 24.5g that I had used.

THe electric fans added 13mi/ a tank so far, and they were only on there for about 1/2 the tank. I think Ill really watch the driving style this tank.. my goal is 350mi for my daily driving.

I have heard this from lots of people but no one ever seems to have a good answer for why. Can someone shed some light on this for me. In my 2001 Mercury Cougar (daily driver) I run it down "0" miles till empty on pretty much every tank. It has a 15 gallon tank and I put 14.5 gallons in it almost every time. The car has 106,000 mile on it and has had ZERO issue with it other than people running in to it. In the '07 Yukon it usually stays above 1/4 tank.
