Tomman,
I have been a member of this forum for 21 years and have probably answered a number of the same question a hundred times. I don't consider it repetitious or boring because each person has a reason for asking and I consider it a privilege to help them out if possible.
I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping people and I'm sure that is the motivation behind a most of our members also.

I'm really not sure why anyone else's fuel tank size is of such interest to Tom. He says he really can't see any reason to do a "55 gallon tank". Seriously? And I can't really see any reason to have a smaller tank. What makes anyone else's fueling preferences "odd" to him?

My last RV had a 40 gallon tank; I hated it since my typical trip was about 350 miles, and at 7mpg, I had to make an additional stop for fuel on the way home. My current rig has a 75 gallon tank; I can now make that same trip without having to stop for fuel on the way home. It also guarantees that I have plenty of fuel for the generator if needed, both at the campsite and on the way home (for AC use).

I think the Op put this posting here because it would have turned into a EV recharging and battery argument in the tow vehicle section.

One of my fellow employees likes to travel with 55 gallon of "Company" gasoline when he leaves town. More "convenient" for some of us to fill up with deductible fuel when RVing. Ed could get to Florida on "free" gasoline when not towing.

Our 94 Burb has a 42 gallon tank so at 10 mpg with our 383 we can go 420 miles, rarely do that in a day. Love it, if we hit a lonely stretch in the middle of Nevada don't have to worry about running out of petrol, love having this extra protection. i quit worrying about gas mileage years ago, cause when I did I didn't enjoy RV'ing very much. Fill it, drive it and enjoy it. I usually don't look at the gas pump while its filling or afterwards. If you worry about mileage a lot, buy a Prius and stay in hotels. Big tanks are necessary for tow vehicles. We started out with a 1965 Chevy Van pulling 24' TT's with a 292 engine, had a 16 gallon tank so we planned our trips from gas station to gas station. actually still have the van and it still will tow.
