How many miles do you get from a tank?

Ok, only been driving the car for a week now, and so far in one week I did 2 fill ups. The gas light came on around 250 miles. Is that to be expected? I love driving the car, but man am I going to spend a fortune on gas!

250 miles? I think your right foot might be broken.

Lucky to see 200.

About 180-200 miles. The M was my final push to become self employed. Cost so much to commute I now have a company and work from home.

I guess I should thank my M
