ya i already combat that issue with gatorade bottles... i been doing that for years. we normally drive everywhere we shoot when it comes to commercials or media, and we have been under some pretty tight deadlines, even while shooting, theres alot of situations where we shoot all day, then travel couple hundred miles to a hotel to sleep for 4 hours if ur lucky and then up and shooting before sunrise.
I was able to do roughtly 700 miles going to the philly from l.a., and did 800 a day on my way from philly to monterey, ca. Fuel consumption is/was my main concern however deadlines were of the esence as well so im sure i burned more fuel than i should have, but the money is good so its ok this time. I am trying to correct my mistakes best i can for the drive back to drop off the car.
