I get about 170 miles on a tank with my Tahoe and I start hunting for fuel. I tow at 55-60 MPH That that puts me over three hours of travel. I can’t go much longer without a bathroom break and a stretch my legs break and walk around the rig and make sure everything is okay break.

Keep the frontier if it meets your needs, or get a Ram with the 3.6 Pentestar. That is a bullet proof motor.

Thanks,

Jeremiah

Don't know about NY but where I live just the transactional costs for a vehicle change (sales tax and registration) alone would be more than a new fuel tank.
