Just between you me and the outhouse, that's too frickin' long without a break, especially when hitting the turns hard. Not everyone is traversing the Gobi, Sahara, Mohave, or Oklahoma. A gas stop every two or three hours ain't all that bad.

There's no rule you have to wait until it's empty to stop. I'll take all the range I can get.
