If memory serves me I thought maybe something closer to 2 gals
    My manual says 22 gal tank but even driving around after light goes on for miles I never can fill more than 17.5 gals . Might be a larger reserve

    I believe the light comes on at 3 gallons. At least that's what I calculated when I ran out of gas.

    I don't know if those above are actually calculating MPG or just going off the dash numbers... I know the best I've gotten in mine was around 220-230 miles which is just under 13 MPG.

    I could probably get better, but I find it near impossible to set the cruise under 75 MPH. 55-65 I get around 18-22 on a flat road (on the dash) and over 70 on a flat road it displays between 12 and 13 if I recall, so it actually isn't that inaccurate.

    Yeah, that’s an interesting point you made. To have a 5 gallon reserve. The average gallons I would put in is right around 17 gallons at every fill up. And I always used the miles divided by gallons method to get my average.

    Yea I think when I'm on "E" I put in about 18 gals. At a certain point the dash won't tell how many miles you have left. It just says something to the affect get some gas NOW. or

    Does anyone run a larger tank at all? Genright or longranger? I would be interested to hear if they are worth the money to get? I get about 400 km a tank, some of the areas we can go are close to 250 Km away with no fuel stations within a reasonable refill distance.

    I do have a can I bring too, but it would be nice to have it all in the fuel tank.

    I always have that AEV reserve filled with 7 gallons. I’ve take mine way past what I was comfortable with expecting to run out of gas, and only put 19 gallons in at around 250-260 miles. But that’s the closest I’ve gotten to running it out.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
