10 Amazing Places You Can Go On One Tank Of Gas In Michigan

You love a good road trip, but let’s face it, the cost of gas can be a deterrent from going. We get it. In fact, that’s precisely why we’ve mapped out the perfect road trip – one that can be completed on one tank of gas.

This trip takes us through northern Michigan all the way to the Thumb (or vice versa). So if you live Up North or near Lake Huron or you’re trying to maximize your weekend travel plans, this may be the trip for you. The trip takes about eight hours to complete and spans 399 miles. We did some digging and learned that the average tank of fuel will take you between 300-500 miles before hitting empty. Of course that depends on the model of your car. SUVs and trucks will guzzle gas, while compacts or hybrids will get you further for less. Here’s a link to our Google Maps itinerary.

Let’s get started!
