    Re: Caravan-mileage

    I have had multiple 94 and 95 cng Caravans. Some have gone as far as 20 miles after the fuel light came on and I made it to the pumps. One runs out within 2 miles of the light turning on....ouch a tow job.

    Depending on the tanks set up I expect a fairly safe 100 miles up to 120 miles on stock tanks.
    With on model of extended tanks I could get up to 160 miles before the light came on.
    My present 95 Caravan can go to 200 miles with it's larger extended tank......approx 10 gge fills on this one.
    On a highway trip driving like granny with cruise on I can go 250.

    Re: Caravan-mileage

    I guess I'm your guinea pig.

    I've run my two Caravans out a couple of times each (thanks AAA!). Each time I got 3-5 miles after the fuel gauge bottomed in the red mark and stopped moving. Mind you I was milking it at 30 mph though. As far as after the light comes on, I count on 10 miles at 60 mph. If I need more than that I'm slowing and sweating. I've read complaints about the fuel gauge accuracy, but mine have been very consistent at the bottom end (where it matters most).

    One way to get a sense of things without running out is to look at the fuel pressure when the tank is very low. At pumps with a pressure gauge, like Riverside or Trillium Anaheim, it'll show the tank pressure when you first hook up the hose, before it starts pumping. The injectors need minimum 90 psi, according to the Caravan CNG Service Supplement Manual.

    I also have a 1995 Caravan I was wondering the same thing. I cant find the GGE of the tanks online.

    started a topic Caravan-mileage

    Caravan-mileage

    I don't really want to run it empty to find out. What is the amount or how many miles are left when the low fuel light comes on? I've had my '95 Caravan many years and have never run it out. I have a friend that ran out in his City of Riverside truck. The nice thing is they have an emergency truck that can go out and refill those that forget and run out. I don't, and am just curious how many miles I have left to get to the station.
