This reminds me of another good strategy: on the way out west this summer I intentionally ran the gas out until the fuel empty light came on. I learned that my range while towing is around 220 miles. I got in the habit of setting the trip odometer to zero at every fill up so i would always know at a glance whether I needed to start sweating. Made the drive through the unpopulated areas of Northern New Mexico and Arizona a lot easier and safer, and I still do this today.

I carry 10 gallons of gas with me for both generator fuel and as an emergency back up.
