As some of you may know, I have had several 900+ mile tanks over the last few months. I am flirting with the 1000 mile tank and figured I would start logging my stats.

I will add more details as to tricks and techniques as I have time.

I have 18 gallons of useable fuel onboard, so 55.6 mpg average will be required. (I will not entertain fuel capacity arguments)

Currently I can maintain 56+ mpg for 700+ miles on my weekly commute. The weekend errands have been what has kept me from the 1000 mile tank. I started this week with a 230 mile head start as I filled up in Ohio on the way back from Lordstown.

Your on track . You'll need to get you distance travelled and distance to empty to add up to about 1100 miles at about 1/2 tank..On my best tanks I've had the total to 1040 miles projected and come up just short.. With the mods you've made I think you have a real good shot at the holy grail.. Good Luck

I was able to get 800 once, but my driving is too varied and I have a lead foot when taking off.

Hope you can do it, it sure looks like it's possible.


Has anyone ever got to over 1000 before?

Not to my knowledge. Definitely none reported here.

I had two 800 plus mile tanks last week, I think I could hit 1000 with no to little a/c and speed of less than 65 mph. But yikes that isn't a lot of fun.:grin:
