It would be nice to stop and not worry about gas fill ups.
Bigger tank=freedom to take that longer, lonlier road. When I went through Wyoming the 8 gallon tank and great mileage on my RT allowed me lot of that. At altitude the RT does over 55mpg so I didn't start to get worried about running on fumes until the 380 mile mark. I didn't plan on that, it's just not all the gas stations that show up on the GPS out west are still in business. Big tanks rock.
