Well in my truck, every other week. I usually fill up when I'm down to 1/4 of a tank left.

So, how about you diesel owners? Anyone can answer... I'm specifically looking for someone who drives anywhere from 5-20 miles in an average day. I was wondering because I'm going to be starting community college this fall or next spring and am driving every day.

And yes, I know your tanks get about 200+ more miles than I do on 3/4 of a tank :rof

Me and my biz partner run a construction business, this time of year I'll put on anywhere from 500-800 miles a week. Appointments all over, flying material to the boys in the field, etc. etc. It hurts... :CRY::CRY:

Round trip to my college is 22 miles, I do drive a good amount on the weekends. I fill up once every 2 weeks, recently two and a half weeks. I normally fill up around 1/4 of a tank.

The Dooge isn't my Daily Driver, I rarely use it during the Winter Months, unless I get that itch and the roads are dry and snow free. I just filled mine up since early March. But, now with the nice weather, I feel that itch daily. :lol3:

That does make a big difference...I went from normally cruising at 75-80 down to 65-70 and it REALLY helped the cause...of course it takes me forever, *cough extra 5 minutes*, to get anywhere

I drive 18 miles a day and fill up every weekend at about 3/4 tank left. I am trying to minimize the shock at the pump. Especially since diesel can jump 10-15 cents during that time!

I usually make it 2 weeks and that's driving 20 miles a day to and from work. Right now I'm sitting 2 weeks and 2 days and I'm down to 1/8 of a tank.

Filling Up

After reading all the previous, mine sounds strange. My truck is my daily driver. Approx 6 miles to work, home for lunch, back to work then home again. About 24 miles per day, mostly at 45 MPH. We rarely use the truck for a weekend trip around town, cuz it is just plain cheaper to take the wife's car, and besides why rack up the miles on my baby...:w: I fill up every three weeks, usually fuel gauge is at 1/4. Hoping to improve on that soon.

Mine was my daily driver until saturday, picked up a 89 dodge colt hatch back from my pa. He upgraded and I got the hand-me-down. 40+ mpg. But when it was the DD I was driving about 20 miles daily, and was filling up every other friday, I usually had about 1/8-1/4 left.
