Yes - the 240-mile strech is the longest one. I added a couple of bottles of gas when I left Coldfoot just in case, but didn't need them. There are a lot of miles without fuel, so it's a good idea to "See gas, Buy gas".

I wisely used the first day of my trip to determine my exact tank range....

Good luck finding Lisa.
