    Just to throw in my .02 on this highly productive thread.....
    I just traded in my '16 Limited Tundra for a '19 1794 Tundra. On my '16, every time I filled the tank it said I had 414 miles range. The dealer gave me the '19 with a full tank, and the range says 560 miles. Same size tank. Hmmmmm…..maybe the new truck just doesn't know my driving habits yet - LOL

    That's correct. Any time you disconnect the negative terminal it resets the Distance to Empty meter, or in your case a new truck with no mileage history. Mine currently says 500 to empty all the time. When I reset it it says 600+. Takes quite a number of tanks to get it to read correctly again.

    I have never filled up more than 30 gallons, but I dont usually run it all the way to the end. Although I think its silly its advertised as 38 and only really around 30-32, realistically for me that is big enough

    Before my 1st lube oil/filter change, i.e., 5K, my truck range was 500. Afterwards, after every re-fuel to full tank, range is 490...wonder why? May be because of not so good driving habits?

    Does the computer take into account winter fuel vs summer fuel? I know mine dropped from 560 to 540 miles pretty suddenly too. That's all I can think of

    @Jpneely: No idea about computer assumptions. Temps here during days is around low 40s to upper 60s. Yesterday, I travelled almost 400mi and about 80% highway; fuel eco is 15.88mpg (manual compute).

    That's about the same temps here too. I know my milage had always dropped in the winter a bit ( even though we rarely ever see a "winter") due to fuel mix changes. I just assumed this fancy smart truck was taking that into account haha
