    Cheap, 500km range, heaps faster, reliable as hell, comfortable enough with a Seat Concepts. Oh and light.

    So, what is the longest stretch between fuel stops? And is availability of fuel (petrol) a given? Carrying that extra fuel is often a hassle.

    There is only 1 fuel stop between Wiluna and Bililuna: Kunawaritji roughly half way, about 800 km from either end. Not open 24/24. Petrol and diesel both $3.50 / litre June 2019. Hot showers, air conditioning, satellite internet. Deserted during summer with days over 50 degrees.

    Actually I get 600km out of my DRZ 28 L tank....on good roads here around NSW coast.
    CSR only has a few clay pans that allow 5th gear / speeds over 100kph. Mostly more like 70.

    Its not a “but” though. They are not hard to find. Not being made does not put them out of the equation. Peoples attitudes do!

    I think you'll find Kunawarritji to Wiluna is about 980 km.
    Bililuna to Kunawarritji is about 655 km.
    If you dont have a fuel drop at Well 23.
