2 Rotopax = 2 gal
Safari tank = 6.6 gal
2 MSR in Sweetcheeks seat cover = .5 gal
Total = 9.1 gal if I ever needed it (haven't yet)

9.1 x 45mpg = 409miles
Husky fully fueled w/ loaded Wolfmans ~ 425lbs and fuel weight is nice and low on bike.
I had the 6.6 gal Safari tank an my TE610 and loved it. Carries the fuel nice and low, especially if its less that 3gals. You'll probably find you don't even need to worry about extra gas, but then again, you are out west. Nice looking with the decals there too.
