It would take me a "Many-Tank Trip" to be able to get down there.... =))

I know, I know....One of the Indianapolis stations here has "One-Tank Trips" feature as part of their news program.....It's just funny every time I hear it.... :lol:

Depends on the size of your Tank !!!!!!!!!!!

Well from my office in Tampa to the lighthouse is 156 miles one way. That would be exactly 1 tank to go there and back as I usually get 310-320 miles to a tank. :cry:

I wonder how many tanks it would take for me to get there. I would love to see Daytona's Ponce Inlet light. There are perhaps only about 2 lights that I would pass up a visit to and they would be more like little beacons on the end of piers.
