Ok is every one calculating there mpg correctly? Ok heres how.
Fill all the way up.
Reset trip on odometer
Drive (as empty as you can)
Fill all the way up again
Take miles on trip divided by how much it took to fill it all the way up again.

I think every one is dividing by 19 when almost nobody can fit 19 gallons in the tank

For instance

I fill up a little over full mark. drive 260 miles. About half way in red mark on E. fill back up. About 14.6 gallons. 260/14.6=17.808mpg

Btw 2002 sport 4.0 5 speed 3.07 gears and 235/75-15r. Its also perfectly maintained from previous owner and my self. With 135000 miles

I suggest filling up at the same gas station on the same pump. Different gas pumps click off and are "full" at different times. I had one last week that clicked off and I then proceeded to pul over 3 more gallons in only with a half squeeze on the handle.
