I never let the gas level get low, I filled up at home, then again on the MassPike, maybe 400 miles or so. We needed about 5 gallons I think (12 bux), I cant recall exact amounts of fuel needed.

As a rule of thumb I never let the gas gage drop below 1/4 tank. I just dont trust GM fuel gages. The lowest I have let the tank run is 10L remaining.

Hehehe I tend to run mine down to the E, but the light doesn't come on because at E I still have like 2-4 gallons.
I really like those DIC'* that the Auroras have. Something more to play with while driving down the highway!

damn... that is good! The best I have ever been able to get is 33 MPG average on a 200 mile trip. That was with the 00 SSEi. I think the highest I get in the Riviera is around 28. I have a shot oxygen sensor though so that probably has something to do with it..
