It's not that I needed the range to make it to a location selling gas (during the summer season) but rather the pricing of the gas was significantly better in most of the towns as compared to the resorts - gas at Muncho Lake resort(s) was well over $7 per gallon as compared to well under $6 in some of the Yukon towns.
Travel in the shoulder season is a different issue entirely with many of the resort not refilling their tanks as they get to the end of August which means a need for longer range.
