182 gallons - 1200 miles-ish. Couple more advantages - choice of fuel stops (best pricing) and, if using diesel for heating - lots of heating "time."

New Flyer coach bus - 160 U.S. Gallons. Haven't had it on the road yet to know its actual mpg, but the model prototype engineering report says this bus should get 6.7mpg on average. ECU has 4.0 mpg lifetime cumulative, but this bus' previous life was a city bus, so take that with a grain of salt....

$2.35/gallon gas at 1 gas station in Hendersonville TN.

$2.42/gallon gas at Costco West Nashville.

$2.69/gallon diesel Lebanon TN.

My 2001 Former ATF 4WD 3500 Chevy Express Bomber Van has an automatic fuel tank switching system with holds 70 gallons total. At 13 MPG with a 8.1 Liter (496 CI) engine the large fuel capacity is a nice thing to have.
