    How big is your tank? You may have to carry a couple of "jerry" cans with you. I get 5.5 to 6.5 mpg in the pete, but I've got 2 100 gallon tanks on it too. 20 gallons won't go very far off the road, cause your mileage will get worse when crawlin'. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
