75%of my flying is local. I generally have about 6-8gals on board I like to be light. Which is about 1/4-3/8 of a tank in the sight gauge. Translate that in to long range tanks shows about 1/8 or less in sight gauges. I have a problem leaving thinking I have 1/8 of a tank of fuel. Maybe I would get use to it but I doubt it. I've flown all over the country in these cubs I never felt or wished I had LR tanks. Im sure there are very good reasons and situations why people have them they just doesn't fit my mission for now. I think I would rather have a pod put fuel in there if needed.
I fly a lot with a guy has FX with LR. and there always full! He says the only way you can have too much fuel is if your on fire😄
