Destinations for Knoxville one tank trips

Where is a one tank  trip and where can you go? As these trips rise in popularity many people are asking these questions. This article takes away some of the guesswork and helps you plan your Knoxville one tank trip.

There are 2 things to keep in mind when planning this kind of journey. Look at the fuel economy and gas tank size. If your tank holds 15 gallons and you get 23 mpg then your trip range should be a half-tank of  gas. Your full tank may get you about 345 mile. Using half of that number so you can get home will be around 170 miles. Of course terrain and heavy traffic can substantially reduce the range of your Knoxville one tank trip so adjust accordingly.
