How far on a full tank of gas?

I just picked up a '00 Elantra 5spd bone stock and so far after topping off the gas tank I'm right at 230 miles w/ less than a quarter tank of gas left. I'll be lucky if I will reach 300 miles on the tripometer. Does this sound right to you guys?

how many miles do you guys typically get on a full tank of gas?

Depends on how you drive. My car gets about 250 miles city driving to a tank.

If I'm lucky, with half city and half highway driving, I get about 320 miles in my car. But your car is a little older. That might make a difference

We don't have that high of an octane in the U.S. It is from 87-93.

Re: How far on a full tank of gas?

I live in southern New York and I've driven to Canada several times. Almost every time I could get just about 400-415 miles to a full tank of gas doing 60-70 mph. That was driving for 5 1/2 hours straight, no stops. The 03 Elantra has a 14.5 gallon tank and when I filled up after that drive, I figured I had about a half a gallon left in the tank.
