I think all of us are wondering the same thing!
This has always been a puzzle and I'm not aware of anyone who has actually conducted a field test on the range of their tank. I often get 17mpg when cruising on the highway at 60mph. So in theory, I should be good for 782 miles on a 46gal tank. Haircut to 750 just to be safe. But my fuel light always comes on after about 550-575 miles and I always buckle under the mental stress and stop for fuel asap.
