Re: How important is fuel capacity?

The premise of this thread begs a point of clarity. What are the longer distances between fuel availability for the typical circumnavigation. Assuming the outlier long legs could be accommodated by fuel jugs, what is a reasonably long leg. A couple thousand miles? Carrying fuel for 500-600nm doesn't strike me as either unusual, nor excessive.
