Default how many miles out of a full tank

instead of MPG ratings, how about how many miles do you get out of a full tank (74 litres/19.5 us gallons).

I get about 350 (about 500 kms) miles out of a tank for mostly city driving and I fill up just before the low fuel light comes on.

Most I have gotten out of a tank was 450 miles (725 KMS) and I had just under a 1/4 tank left.

This not very useful information. Tank size varies which will change how far you can go.

If I grandma it, I get around 330; if I drive it like I normally do, I average around 270~280.
When my wife drives it, she gets around 370~390. She has some kind of slow person voodoo magic that gets great mileage out of my 4.0. I guess it is my heavy shoes.

I can get 500-500 kms out of a tank. Most was pushing 600 or just over but that was stock and before the lifting. Now with the 31's and the DD tune from fred I'm back to around stock.
This is a mixture of city and freeway driving.
