<u>there are long stretches of nuthin'. You need to be sure you can cover the distance to the next gas station.

True that! In lots of stretches in the US there is nothing. There have been a couple of times in all our trips when we prayed for a gas station.

I mentioned that we filled up as we left the Dallas area. We stopped once, but did not get any gas. Decided to push through so we'd get home before full dark. Figured 6 hr drive door to door, and we left at 3:00 in the afternoon.
Most of the way we were going 83 MPH. Fast.

As we pulled into the driveway, I asked her, "Hey we didn't get any gas since Dallas, right?" She agreed, "nope".
Looked at the gas gauge. Still has almost 1/4 tank left.

We used about 10 gallons to drive 330 miles. Honda CR-V. Great milage. The gas cost less than it would have cost to park the car at the airport.
