One Tank Trip – How Far Can I Go In My Chevy Cruze?

Trying to plan a last minute summer trip?  With longer days and warmer nights its time to get out on the road and get lost in the Great American landscape.  So let’s “Cruze” Into Summer!

One great low cost way to travel is in our Chevrolet Cruze Diesel.  The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel comes equipped with a 1.6L Turbo engine and a 13.5 gallon gas tank at an MPG of 31 City and 47 Highway.  Fueleconomy.gov states that the Chevy Cruze Diesel 500 miles of total range before having to refuel.

 

If we began a 500 mile journey in Wilmington, NC, where could we go with just one tank?

We came up with a wide variety of great American cities and towns that you could get to in just one tank of gas:

Orlando, Florida 442 miles  SSW
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 442 miles  NNW
Lexington, Kentucky 448 miles  NW
Trenton, New Jersey 448 miles  NNE
Frankfort, Kentucky 474 miles  NW
Columbus, Ohio 483 miles  NNW
Newark, New Jersey 494 miles  NNE
Cincinnati, Ohio 495 miles  NW
Jersey City, New Jersey 495 miles  NNE
New York, New York 496 miles  NNE
Montgomery, Alabama 500 miles  WSW
Tampa, Florida 509 miles  SSW
Akron, Ohio 511 miles  NNW
Birmingham, Alabama 511 miles  W
Louisville, Kentucky 517 miles  NW
Nashville, Tennessee 517 miles  WNW
St. Petersburg, Florida 526 miles  SSW

The Cruze Diesel is available in either Sedan or Hatch, and in either Automatic or Manual transmission.
