Broke 700 Miles on my last tank!

I was pretty excited to break 700 miles (703.9 to be exact) on my last tank. I had just over 1 gallon to spare so that effectively makes my range over 750 miles. Of course the car was telling me that I was running on fumes so it was pretty scary pushing it to my usual fueling station.

Been in the same situation with my UG telling me I had 1 gallon left with 741 miles on the odometer. My Sonata holds 18.5 gallons though....

Good job!

I had one trip in my Prelude where I went 600.2 miles with a 15.9-gallon tank. I coasted into the gas station and put in 15.9 gallons.

My Forester has the same size tank. I usually go about 330 miles and put in fourteen or fifteen gallons.
