Our 725 mile run is 3-4X a year, from southern NH to Nova Scotia. We do 325 miles to Calais, Maine, refill, and can get all the way to our place near Liverpool on that tank (another 400 miles), although we usually get gas near Halifax, so we don't arrive on fumes. Nearest gas to our house there is 15 miles. We could drive slower but 25 mpg at 75-80 with stuff on the roof is OK.
Some EV fans have suggested we rent a car for the trip, but it makes no sense to rent a car for the four 7-30 day trips and still be making payments on another car that's only good for short runs. But that's just us.
