I'd rather stop too, but I'm thinking of West Texas where sometimes there's 200 miles between gas stations. Ever been on I 10 just east of El Paso, I believe around Castroville?
Nothing zip nada for hundreds of miles at a time. Lots of "last gas for xxx miles" kind of signs.
Maybe it's just a Texas thing. Does anyone else run into this anywhere else in the country?
Yes, we have similar problems over here. Heading west there are less and less fuel opportunities. I have had to pull into private property to buy fuel off of farmers on the odd occasion. Also some fuel stations in the country are not open on weekends, which is when most of us ride...
I have been keeping an eye out for a poly canister that would be suitable for an extra few litres...not that I like the idea of carrying it on my back rack. :???:
Just thinking, maybe one of those little squat fuel cans they make for small boats would do the job? like this?
