    My brother's receives about 20-22 miles on the line doing 65mph. The above poster's theory isn't undesirable yet in case you somewhat favor to understand then get your self a three gallon gasoline can (like you would use to fill a lawnmower). once you're close to to out of gasoline take the line. list mileage at the same time as mild is going on, then once you run out. fill up from the gasoline can to make it again to a station.

    It depends on each individual car, I have seen some that run out of petrol before this happens. Also never run out of petrol in a fuel injected car its bad for the pump

    My car manual says about 16 miles depending on how fast you go and how you drive (city or highway) but I have gone slightly farther.
