    Got over 700 miles on a tank this week! Thanks everyone for the tips on using my scan gauge II on this car. I never would have even got close without it, the low fuel bar started blinking at 570 miles, and the HSI said 0 miles to go around 600 miles! It is a little unnerving driving that far on a low fuel light, but the scan gauge has been accurate to less than a tenth of a gallon for the last three tanks, so I decided to go with that info, and it did not let me down. it reported 11.2 Gallons used, and fill up ended up 11.1 at 704 miles.:woot:

    Pulling up to the filling station...

    my scan gauge under reports by about a tenth of a gallon per tank, still a lot closer to reality...

    Outstanding mpg, Michael!

    Would be curious should you ever have fuel pump failure if you regularly run that low.
    Good to know I've never been below a gallon reserve. :0

    Thanks! :) but I won't be satisfying your curiosity, it was a one time thing, I was too nervous I was gonna get stuck lol, I usually fill up at 600 giving me a couple gallons to spare :) I ran out of gas once in my Ranger a few times, and yes, I had to replace the fuel pump :p don't know if there is a correlation though...
