My Gas and MPG estimations

2300 Miles
cruiser got 14mpg before I rebuilt it, I assumed the same for the engine now
190 gallons of gas w/ 15% safety margin
Gas was only 3.30 in fairbanks when i left and was less in anchorage so I chose 3.00 per gallon
$570 in gas

Time
2300 miles
50 mph at 10 hrs a day
4.6 days, say 5

Ferry
$1,247 one way w/o a cabin, sleep in car
4 days travel, one day in Juneau

I plan to sleep in my mountaineering tent, -10F is nothing at night. My diet probably wont change, Ramen, PB, tortillas, Cheese, and sausage.
