The tank is too small! In this case, bigger is better.

Re: Give the unwashed masses a bigger gas tank!

I would like to have both if I could. A larger main tank and a second auxilary tank. I would love to have a 5-700 mile range.

Re: Give the unwashed masses a bigger gas tank!

YES! My old vehicross had a 22.5 gallon tank and that was perfect. My wife is getting pissed that I'm filling up so often but then I have to remind her that when I fill up, its litterally half of what I'd put into the VX.

Also, the gas light comes on when there is still 4 gallons left in the 19.5 gallon tank. Given the MPG, this gives it about 70 miles of range when the light comes on. I'm used to seeing it when its 20 miles out - when the light comes on its a very "uncomfortable" feeling.

Re: Give the unwashed masses a bigger gas tank!

How reliable are the auxillary tanks? I'd love to get one and would definately pay 1k for it if there was a place around here to get it put in.

Absolutely, this gas tank size the one thing I can say that I am truly dissatisfied with.

Good thing for me there is a gas station around every corner so I don't mind getting it filled up.
