I wish I had that kind of range. Even at 35mpg, that little bitty gas tank in the Focus will only carry you about 400-420mi.

Hey you could have an xB with a 11.9 gallon tank and 28mpg factory typical mileage and some lead foots get 23-26mpg - and of the 11.9 gallons you have to work hard to fill it and run it almost dry - really a typical fillup is less than 10 gallons if you don't push the extreems.

Nice range. My brick will only get up into the high 300's, and that's in nice summer weather.
