How Far Can A Semi Go On A Full Tank?

This article discusses how far a semi truck can go on a full tank of fuel.

The average fuel economy for new trucks is around 7 miles per gallon, so a truck with twin fuel tanks can travel approximately 2,100 miles on a full tank.

Most new Freightliner trucks have a fuel tank capacity of 150 gallons and a 100 gallon tank for the tractor,

providing enough fuel to cover the truck’s total weight. The tank sits on the side of the truck and holds enough fuel to help balance out the tractor.

This type of semi-truck can travel up to 1,400 miles on a full tank before needing to refuel.

The more modern trucks may be able to travel further due to improved fuel economy but they all need to stop and refuel at some point.

 So how far can a semi go on a full tank?
