    I never run mine completely to empty, but I get around 300 per tank (not counting the reserve). And I have the smaller 17.5 gallon tank. On the highway I get great mileage, usually between 27 and 30 mpg. In the city driving conservatively I hover around 20. However, as soon as you hit the throttle in my truck gas burns fast! I've been doing little tweaks to the supercharger lately, mostly giving it more fuel at WOT. It's come to a point where my power is increasing, but mpg is decreasing a lot. Sometimes I can actually watch the gas gauge drop as I race around.

    But on average I get 20 mpg with a mix of driving conditions.

    Well, before I added all the mods, I was getting 400+ miles to the tank full, but now with all the mods, I'm only getting about 350 at the most. This is Highway miles.

    Averaging 325 miles per tank in mixed driving. Never done an all highway cycle, but I would anticipate 375-400 miles on a tank.

    those of you with 91-94 X's
    when you fill up totally, does your gas gauge read well above the "F"?
    If so does anyone know if it goes that far below the "E"??

    When the gauge goes to E on my truck, I have found that it has about 2 gallons left in the tank. It can go a little below E.

    I don't think I'm being a stuff-a** here, but come on, what is the point of asking "how many miles to you get per tank?". First of all, there are 3 or 4 different gas tank sizes on our 1991 to 2002 Explorers, 2 and 4 door models.. .secondly...highway or city driving makes a difference...thirdly...there is a difference in mileage between summer gas and winter gas...Fourthly...there's a difference in mileage between 4x4 and 4x2 Explorers because 4x2's are lighter in weight. :)

    FWIW my truck, a 94 Sport 4x4, has a 19.3 gal tank. It gets about 250 miles in hilly town driving in summer, 220 in winter. It's O2s are probably beginning to get aged too. Hopefully winter mileage improves with a KKM this time. Hwy mileage was about 350 miles per tank but that was before a lot of my mods. Need to take a trip soon to test it.

    also gear ratios affect gas mileage. 4:56 wont get anywhere near 3:08 in MPG.

    If im lucky I get around 215 miles on the 21 gallon tank. I have 95 xlt 4 door 4x4 (never use it) kkm true rev intake, custom cat back exhuast, bosch platinum plugs and sti wires, with 31x10.5 inch tires. I also dont think it helps I live 15 min away from one of the biggest cruse/race scenes in the north east, and i go there every weekend to pick on the riced out hondas :)
