So, my 100 gallon tank minus 1/4 leaves me 75 gallons. Between 8 - 9 mpg (depending on various factors) leaves me looking for fuel at about 600 miles.

YMMV.

Take care,

if you wanted to mob this / edit is on a FL RV
the out line for the gen if you pull the fitting off the top of the tank there is a tub there that well slide right out

you can install a longer tub to the size you want so it well run out at more like 10gallons as 10 is still all most 100 miles

If you are driving a class c gasser now, you will be very happy with the switch. I moved from 5th wheel tugged by my 8 mpg V10 gas truck to 11 mpg diesel but still stings at the pump. Like they say, if you have to ask how much it will cost. You can't afford it
