I have used the "measure tool" (its icon is a ruler) in Basecamp to measure roughly, between two points, my expected gas range. I then note that location and may even move to Google Maps to search for gas stations near that location. That said, generally all I do now, if I've got a long trip planned, is just make a mental note at the start of each day as to where I might stop for gas. It really depends on the type of roads you'll be on and in what part of the country. Out in the boonies, I'd worry about it a little more. If I'm planning on being on well-travelled roads, I know I'll find gas.
