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
this is it..i can go over 500k on a tank.I dont need to but if i have already done 200 ks,and come to an intersection which suggests it is 100 k to a place,i know i can go there and come back.i dont have to worry about where the gas stations are.
