Which reminds me. One time I commuted from RI to Milton, mass for work. My gas was real low, but I figured I can fill it up along the way. Plenty of gas stations around, and I was running late. Well, I made it to work and the light came on. When its time to go back home, I went to the gas station, and noticed I had forgotten my wallet at home!

The only money I had in my pocket was $4.75.
Luckily,I made it back home with only $4.75 of gas.
Once I got home,my car wouldnt even start.
I will always leave emergency money in the glove box from now on.
And never pull that kind of **** again.
Where do you park your car again?

to the OP, "Miles per Tank" is not a great metric, as everyone fills up "a tank" differently. Do what Jack said, keep a log (yes, there's an app for that) on how many miles on the tripmeter you do, and how many gallons you put in. It will be much more accurate than miles per tank. That said, even in my new XV, I'm only getting about "320 miles per tank". But I'm also only filling up ~12.5 gallons per fill up.
