When I got the ZR2 the fuel range indicator would show around 390-402 miles indicated after a fill up....
Now after the dealer fixing my DIC I fill up to an indicated 360 or so....
They did replace the DIC, so maybe I just answered my own question!
What range do you guys show after a fill up?

Mine is between 300-340 based on my last tank.
 
Mine shows 270-370 miles. If you short trip it, mileage never seems to be good. Takes 20 miles for average to work right.

400 miles = 15.5 mpg on 26 gallon tank, so nothing special. My lifetime average is 12.5 mpg = 325 miles. I've seen 24 mpg over 50 miles highway at 65 mph and I've seen 9 running in manual banging shifts around town.

I just did a 550 mile trip with my wife's Tahoe 6.2L, loaded with 5 people and gear and almost got 19 mpg. That's running speed of 65 to 80+ mph, some decent mountains with grades and stomping it down on a few passes. Average speed was 57ish mph.
 
I see 330+ after driving down from mountains into valley where I live then filling up. Yeah must be prior mpg, after a week of stop n go it resets much lower

How the hell did you get a 26 gallon tank when the rest of us got a 24?

IDK, but that what the previous generations held, so I go with it. Just keep filling it up.

I can get 7 gallons of DEF in my 5.3 gallon tank too......LOL.

I never got 400 miles of range. My truck averaged 14.8 over the first 10k miles. That comes out around 355 miles a tank if I ran it bone dry. I typically was stopping every 280-300 miles. I don't really pay any attention to the estimated range. Unless you are on a highway just cruising, realistically it should say 360. Even at 360 that's a bit optimistic for mixed driving. Atleast it was in my case.

My truck would often show 17-21mpg on the current drive deal. Strangely enough at the pump, my average would be around 15, lol
I've seen this message a lot.
