V6 or V8?
RWD or AWD?

Still a few variables to understanding accurate range without even getting into the "Where are you and how do you drive" questions.

Not only equipment differences but highway vs local. As a rule my weekly mileage back and forth to work sucks and I am below 275, it's all local and I do enjoy the occaisional quick start off the line. I could maybe squeeze more out but don't want to take any chances. Pure highway driving gives me around 22 - 23 MPG even at speeds exceeding 80 for long distances and in that case I am around 350 per tank. Let's face it nobody buys these cars for fuel economy.

The Poll feature is cool, but the question could have been more specific. Nevertheless, my 2006 STS V8 1SF almost always shows in the low 300's range after filling. Does anyone know if the computer updates the range based on actual mileage over the life of the car ... last 100 miles .... or what.

On a related subject, I had set my NAV system to display "arrival time" on a 800 mile trip and in the beginning, if I'd drive 80, my arrival time was based on 80 for 800 miles, so it recalculated starting at the beginning of the trip. By the way, these programmers are on the ball as when I hit Atlanta and stalled to crawl, it quit using results and based it on an normal average - impressed! :cheers:
