Also 50 gallons to travel 2400 miles isn't anything special. A Fiat Ducato (Ram Promaster) van could theoretically make the trip on little more than 50 gallons total with one fuel stop.
Quite a few vehicles could make the same trip with 50 gallons. It's a publicity stunt, so it's more about making sure it's done with one tank.

I'll be interested to see the actual figures after the trip data is in. They mentioned the vehicle is capable of 75 mpg. I'm assuming they won't be hyper driving it for max mpg. This puts the vehicle in line with the old FreedomCar capabilities.
