how many miles do you normal get, just wondering if mine needed a tune up !amazed
damn I don't get that much. All in all, about a 1/2 tank of gas will last me a good close to the end of the week if I pace myself. But it's coming to be like $30+ to fill.

hmm mine was horrible until i recently did a tune up now a half of tank has lasted me all week when a full tank barely lasted a week , thats how bad everything was, lol so if u hve a older truck well hell mine is a 99 but a tune up is the best gas saver and do it urself dont get suckerd in to let a mechanic do it for u its not hard and alot cheaper if u do it

I can get upwards of 350 miles (highway) on a full tank (22 gallons). City drops down to 300 max. Now, if you blow out your cat., you can get upwards of 450 out of it. :)

My friends 98 3.9 dakota gets around 19mpg average when I used it for 2 weeks. Hell of alot better than the 408 in my R/T that only gets about 10 on a street tune and driving pretty easy.
