A gas station! I know that fuel mileage isn't a big thing wiht the Z3 but on the NE caravan, it was interesting -- ///M owners were always pleading mercy for gas stops -- a few broke off short on fumes. My little 1.9 was tanked at the start and comfortably made the lunch break. In fact I didn't refuel until just befor e the autocross. In total, I made 1,100 miles on three comfortable tankfuls.
Besides, there's alweays a Sebring supercharger -- keep it (looking) stock and blow the doors off sixes.
