How many miles are you getting from a full tank?

Hey all rav4 owners!
Im brand new to this forum. I have a 2007 rav4 limited 4cylinder and from a full tank till the warning light comes on how many miles do you guys get?

I get around 240ish miles per tank. I drive in NYC from Brooklyn to Queens to Manhattan almost everyday and about every 4 days I would have to refill again. Any suggestions since gas is almost $4 bucks a gallon!

I'm averaging about 18 mpg all city driving in my 2009 RAV4 V6 FWD. Is there any way I can improve this?

I don't know how many miles I'm getting total per tank.

On the highway I get 300, 310 miles before the refuel message. On the board computer with my latest refill I got range of 380 miles.

The problem with my rav is, I never can get more than 10 gallons of fuel no matter how much empty it gets. I read that it has a 16 gallon tank, and those 6 gallons are bothering me that the reserve is so big. So in reality I could go for many more but I have to stop for refill.

Have gotten as high as 29mpg highway driving, but I average 26mpg during the summer. Right now it's a disaster since I am on winter tires, cold weather and winter fuel. I get around 240 miles until I hit 1/4th of a tank and refill during these cold days.

I got 300 miles 2 weeks ago. I'm pretty sure if i'd gone another few miles I would have been on the side of the road calling Toyota care! Usually I refuel @ around 240-270.
