Probably not, looking at last year's stage schedule:

section 2 is 84 miles. Is your 80 mile range when you are riding easy or hammering the throttle? Less than 1/2 of that 84 miles is special stage, the rest is transit where you might just try to ride real easy and conserve fuel.

You can carry more fuel as long as it is NOT mounted on your body (i.e. in a backpack). Some guys strap a 1L MSR camp fuel bottle to the bike someplace. Might be enough for you to make it back to service.
