Well in the first place, Elijah didn't die, he disappeared in a chariot of fire. Second, Elisha was here longer so probably more, but the most famous of Elijah miracle was calling the fire down from heaven..

Elisha requested to have double the portion of Elijah's prophetic spirit. Elijah said it would be so if Elisha saw him being taken up to heaven, which Elisha did see indicating his request was granted. If I'm not mistaken, the Bible records 7 miracles performed by Elijah and 14 by Elisha?
