      That's pretty darn good man. I've never had a completely full tank, nor have I kept up with total miles to one "batch" of vegi.

      I figure with a full 60 gallon tank, I could get pretty close to 800 if not a little better. I know I covered a little over 600 with around 3/4 tank, so 800 should be doable.

              Well I do not know how far we really got on just one tank of oil but I do have a 100 gallon tank. We did however just get back from a trip of 4083 miles and used only 17 gallons of diesel fuel.

                            I've been getting 750-800 on my 51 gallon tank. I'm sure that will start going down rapidly since the hubs are going to be locked in 4x4 a lot more on my snowy, icy, 10% grade daily commute!
