I got 393 on a full tank once (all highway) but i ran it past the empty line really far just to see how many i could get...the gas gauge in my car moves around alot i've had it go below empty and then back up to almost a 1/4 tank...

Exactly^ Sometimes I wonder if I would of been better of buying the 2.5 V6 instead of the zetec. I feel the 4cylinder has to work to hard to move the big tour around.
