I take it you had a larger gas tank than stock if you drove 17 hours
Just kidding, I know the "big" gas tank on my Midget goes just far enough
for my kidneys to process a 20 oz bottle of 7Up, so I stop to fill the
Midget tank and empty mine. I actually enjoy driving my Midget long
distances. I find that the accelerator position is more comfortable than in
my 2002 GTI, in which my knee tends to hurt after driving over a hundred
miles or so.
Keep having fun with it! I have this premonition that one of these days I
will find such a deal on a Bugeye. Unfortunately, it will be so original and
in such fine shape (yeah, right!) that I will consider it a moral imperative
to make it a concours trailer queen. Then I will have to change my name and
join the witness protection program.
OK, I will stop pushing buttons for a little while now.
