My previous car was a Suzuki Samurai, similar to the Geo Tracker. (Geo is made by Suzuki.) The ten gallon gas tank was a pain, but never really a problem off paved roads in Death Valley. I'd be careful to fill it at the last gas station I came to, and never had to worry about running out of gas. The only problem with that is that I had to fill up in Furnace Creek or Shoshone, neither of which is known for it's low priced gas. I once filled up in Shoshone, drove into Death Valley, through Warm Springs Canyon, over Mengel Pass, out through Goller Wash, through Trona, and down to the 395. I think this would be the longest route in Death Valley between gas stations, and I had no problem with gas.
