Its not how far you can go on a tank of gas but how far you can go before your concern over where you next need to fill up starts to influence your rides route.

I hate not being able to suddenly decide to go a different route because I'm already 200k into my range and I don't know exactly how many k's the new route is.

more range is gooder unless the petrol weight compromises handling
+ lots.

I consider 300km a minimum also.
