Distance To Empty (Dte)

May 16, 2008 about Dodge Dakota

Don't trust it. I had 4 miles left on my DTE, ran out of gas and got stuck in a bad neighborhood in Detroit. Luck I had a cell phone.

Well you did buy a Dodge Dakota... everyone knows those are such bad ass vehicles that should you get stuck in a bad neighbourhood and nothing will happen to you. ... Seriously dude, buy a real vehicle. You can't surely expect a crappy dakota to give you the right readout.

You must have sensor that needs calibrating. My DTE read 0 miles and I ran mine 40 miles from work to home, filled up the tank, 19.5 gallons and still had 1.5 gallons to empty. 18+ mpg highway light foot, 15 city, 13 mountains, 8 towing camper. Best small truck with a V8. Luv it.
