3.3. Fuel autonomy
Cars and buggies need to have a fuel autonomy of minimum 550 km since they cannot use the fuel provisioning during the stages (on the checkpoints).
It’s not always necessary to mount an expensive extra petrol tank. It is allowed to use extra recipients (jerry cans), to secure it in your vehicle and to empty it in your main tank as soon as you can.
