I am sorry! I have been lazy. I have been through a couple tanks now and have not done this. The timing has been poor and I always seem to have something going on. I will try to get this done next empty!

I have another fill-up data point to add to the Titan XXL measurement matrix: Before going out to Foxboro last weekend, I tanked up with approximately 55-60 miles on the DTE:
= I was able to fit 33.5 gallons @ $2.899/gal before the pump shut off at $97.00 because the tank was full
= Previous fill-ups (34.5 gallons) were definitely hitting the $100 pump max/price auto-shutoff (or pretty **** close to it)
= 55-60 DTE miles represents 2.5-3.0 gallons of fuel (based on 22-25 MPG)?
= I am guessing that the 5.5 gallons (40 - 34.5) left in the tank (at DTE of 0 miles) will yield ~100 miles of driving on reserve once you hit "E" but I don't have the balls to test my math!

I may test that. I am not scared to put a 5 gallon can in the truck and drive it until it dies. I think cycling the fuel pump a few times will do the trick. If not we can always say it should have!

When I installed my tank I had a gas can with with exactly 5 gal. After install drove 3.3 miles to the closest diesel station and filled up with 34.495 gal. Total 39.495 gal is what my tank held including whatever it used during the drive to the station, which I assume is minimal.

I have the 48 gallon and know that when I put 4-5 gallons in from my old tank, my DTE went to zero in the 3-4 miles I drove to the pump after installation.

Recently My DTE was at 0-5 and she took 43.5 gallons.

I know I am failing you miserably @justlucky

I have not been in a position to run it out of fuel 😂😂

I am sitting at the pump with 1 mile DTE but headed out coyote hunting for the night and can’t chance it.
