When disaster happens several things can lead to your success or failure.
You can alter your vehicle to go further, or you can practice fuel management.
Great fuel mileage can only take you so far when looking to travel large distances without refueling.
Raise your fuel storage to raise the distance you can go. Some ways to carry extra fuel are:
Conventional tanks are between 350 and 400 miles in distance. Long-range tanks can add about another 100 miles. Bigger tank = more fuel = more fuel
Many cars actually have space for this. You just doubled your mileage.
You can add 5 gallons per can. You can add to the outer shell of your vehicle, so no interior room is lost.
If you want something low profile to add to your roof or the back of your vehicle use flat cans.
These cans are also great for ATVs.
Trucks have bed space to place barrels.
Pumps are a great idea (12v, battery, manual). I don’t recommend siphoning, but it is possible.
If you have a roof rack, you can use ratcheting straps to hold basic fuel cans down on your roof.
If you keep enough extra fuel with each vehicle, you will be able to make a long range trip to your Bug-Out Location (BOL). Using these options, determine how you will extend the range of any vehicle.
