We did a "one tank" trip back in 2008. We got in the car, drove up to Disneyland (1-1/2 hours, about 90 miles) and spent 3 days there. They were having a 3-day pass for $99 for SoCal residents special, so we took advantage of that. We then went a little further north and did the 3-hour tour of Warner Bros studios, and came home. All on one tank. The hotels were all at discount because my husband is retired military, so the only thing we really had to pay full price for, were restaurants. Even there, I had a coupon for one place.
