Extra Fuel In Moab

I am heading out to Moab in April for my first time and need to know if I will need to carry extra fuel on the trails or if the stock JK tank is sufficient. I have a 2009 JK Unlimited with 37 Toyos, 5.13 gears and a 6.4 Hemi. We have rented a house about 10 miles outside of town if that helps. Any advice from those familiar with Moab would be greatly appreciated.

Don't need extra for the normal trails.

personally, if you have the space or a rack, carry some. we had a couple very late nights trying to find some lost friends and the extra gas came in handy.

you're typically not burning a ton of gas when wheelin moab, but days can be very long and then nights even longer.

Thanks for the info. Moab has been on my "to do" list for a long time and I am really looking forward to it! Just want to be sure my rig is ready to go. Thanks again.

I carried a 5gal can with me when I ran solo this past fall, but never needed it. If you're going back to town every night, you'll be fine. If you want to camp out and run trails two days in a row without returning to refuel, then it might be different. Still not a bad idea if you get caught out in the rain on a trail that turns to mud.

Btw, the drive really isn't that bad getting out there. I ran I-70 all the way out, prepare for a jaw-dropping view when you get near Denver. I visited friends up near Park City, so came home via mostly I-80 and didn't get the view of the mountains.

Only Utah trail I've needed extra fuel for is Hole In The Rock. Not on the Safari agenda, Frenchie dies it sometimes on the Labor Day camp out.

Thanks again for all of the info. Sounds like I am good to go without extra fuel. Just one less thing to carry!
