Figure This!

A 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser with a 38.2-gallon gas tank traveled 1691.6 miles without refueling.

Volkswagen has developed a car that can travel 80 miles on 1 gallon of gas.

Many trucks have more than one gas tank.

Because they had no gas gauge, some older-model Volkswagens had a 2-gallon reserve tank.
