I'm making the trip from Buffalo NY to Stuart Florida July 2nd. ITs about a 19 hour drive and i'm just trying to figure out how many miles per tank I can expect to get. Anyone had their tC out for a long trip yet? Thanks
The most I've ever gone is 382. I was a bit nervous with the light on for that long and it took 13.3 gallons to fill (less than a gallon left). If I were on a road trip, I'd plan to start looking for gas at about 330 depending on how far apart stations usually are for a trip like that.
EDIT: BTW, when you guys are getting low, lights been on for some miles, and you take a right or left turn, or accelerate hard, does your engine kinda die/buck like it's getting fuel starved? I noticed that when i try to push it past 310 miles, if i even get to 310, and I give it some gas, all the power will drop out real hard, car doesn't die, but what I assumed it was was fuel starvation.... goin around a bend hard on empty=intermittent fuel delivery as the pump tries to find the last fuel sloshing around the tank.....
I haven't tried that specifically, and haven't experienced it. I usually get gas before the light comes on. My Corsica was really bad for it though. TT Supras have an elaborate structure in the tank to raise the fuel level near the pick up to prevent this. I doubt the tC does.
