MPG on 1 tank of fuel?

I would just like to see what everyone gets on one tank of fuel. That way i can see if something is wrong with my tuck. I believe i should be getting more MPG for what i have done but maybe i'm crazy. Thanks.

One tank = 415 miles. simple driving no towing.

2001, 2500 tow rig.( BHAF with AFE turbo tube, BD AUX pump, 4" turbo back pipe, Super Phat Shaft turbo, Comp Box, SMARTY, Gauges { egt, boost, tranny}, Fully built Tranny, New BD-VP44, 40HP injectors Painted Valve cover) Looking to smoke everyone:

I get over 600miles per tank and if I don't I get angry...It's probably not the truck, it's probably the right foot...

Most people with sane driving should be able to get more than 600 miles on a tank. Now cold starts hurt MPG something something fierce. But on the highways 600 miles on a tank, everyone should be to see that if the stops are kept down.

EDIT: I drove straight from Ohio to South Carolina without a single stop and with speeds close to 90MPH at times. (I also had brand new MT tires on too, that hurts MPG)

I was out of fuel when I got there, but it still made the 600 mile trip. My tools of survival: Water bottles, mixed nuts, Tool, Led Zeppelin, and ..............

Dam i never get 600 miles to a tank. I never got 450 miles to a tank. My drag is on 4x5. Maybe that's not the right setting to have it on. i drive like an old lady. Something isn't right here!!!

Mike or Sean knows where to set these for MPG, wait for them to chime in.

set the Edge Comp on 5x5 and leave it. 450 miles sounds about right for winter fuel, summer fuel i can usually get around 600 miles.

I always end up filling up around 29 gallons, because I never let the gauge drop below the 1/8th mark. And how far I go depends on how I'm driving, etc... I generally pull about 500miles out of that, and there isn't much that counts for freeway, and I tend to get on it a bit as well. Driving on the freeway, just cruising, getting 600 out of a tank doesn't seem unreasonable at all. I would venture a guess that I could probably be closer to 700.
