There are still plenty of places to explore that don't have fueling depots close by and there are still small towns that do have fuel but roll up the sidewalks at dusk and the pumps aren't on 24/7.

Sitting the tanks aside for a spell while they slim down is much more acceptable then 3 or 4 fuel stops in a day and if you add the oil change petcock/hose and a CPR filter the tanks will be on more then they will ever be off.

It's going to be a long 4 week wait since I have her torn down waiting for the new additions to arrive.
