From my experience on cross countries you can never have enough gas, time on the ground is still time wasted. My reason for an RV-10 is to travel where ever I can and experience not just the US but other places and being able to add distance is great thing.

Personally, I'd prefer to land every 2-3 hours rather than wear a diaper, a condom catheter, or try to pee in a bottle in an airplane with a control stick. Getting fuel at the same time isn't a problem for me.

It sounds like he likes the optionality of having more fuel. He's not necessarily going for a marathon session every time. We shouldn't chastise him for having a different set of priorities...I mean at least he has options. I have recently been looking for a new anvil and it's rough in terms of kinda just have to take what you get - source.

Rememeber when you drove your car or truck to go somewhere? How often were you stopping? Just because you are flying 2.5x the supposed speed limit, seat time is seat time.
