    Most cars are good for 325 miles, more or less. Allowing for unusable fuel
    and reserve for geographic spacing of towns and fuel stops, 275 miles is
    about maximum.

    With the new Liberty 2.8 diesel jeep coming to the market, let us hope
    there will be a long range option with auxilliary tanks to allow a minimum
    of 600 miles useful range. It will come in handy on long road trips and
    during emergencies when fuel is not readily available, as Hurricane Frances
    has made a reality.

  2. Yes, I'm sure all the good folks in Kansas will appreciate being able to
    drive to Copper Mountain CO to avoid a tornado and everyone else will enjoy
    paying extra for the range they won't need. Folks in San Fran could drive
    to Salt Lake City next time they have a tremor.
