Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy a performance car that got 500 miles to a tank of fuel, or an SUV that could go for 700? Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one that wishes every car made came with a bigger fuel tank. Right now the average size of a tank for a mid-sized to large car is 16-19 gallons. Automakers choose these sizes because their goal is for you (the consumer) to get about 300 miles in combined driving out of a fill-up. That means that whether you drive a Prius or a Ferrari, you’re still going to the pumps after about 5 hours of driving. Sure, some cars (diesels especially) will pull more, but for the majority of us that means hitting the pumps at least once a week. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand automakers are restricted by space, safety regulations and performance, but wouldn’t it be great to only have to fill up once a month? Who knows, maybe I’m going about it all wrong and should simply buy a clean diesel. The fact of the matter is though, I want to know how I can get my performance and range in one happy little package.
