Day 2


Suggested Fuel Stops:

Be aware of fuel surge on corners, its best to have a fair bit of fuel in your tank.

Start full of 98 / E85, E 85 carry Jerries depending on your fuel economy/tank size/right foot.

98 at BP: For those on 98, there is a BP in Bairnsdale or Bruthen on the way. In-between Day 1 and 2 go in to Bright and go to their BP. We plan on finishing the cruise at the large BP Service Centre on the M1 inbound to Melbourne (see pic above).

E85: at UNITED TRARALGON WEST or UNITED TRARALGON SOUTH

This is the last stop for E85 you will need enough Jerries plus your full tank for 393km Day 1 and 324km Day 2, total of 717km.  To be safe bank for a full tank and about 100L of Jerries minimum. This calculation is based on if you use 20L/100km you will use 143.4L, if your tank is 60L you will have left over 16.6L. Going up mountains with many corners is not the most fuel efficient driving and E85 isn't made for economy.  If you are worried get flex fuel or bring even more E85.  Just make sure they are tied down safely.
