I had mentioned, previously, in the discussion about range that I think two tanks would provide a great solution for all.

I'd like to see a 2 gallon primary tank for the ICE that would provide the comfort and safety for most people in an every day situation. This two gallon tank would probably last most about a month or whatever and would probably not be too prone to stale gas situations.

Additionally, I'd like to see a 6 or 7 gallon tank that can be used for long hauls and trips. This would only have to be filled up when necessary for an extended range of say 500 miles or whatever that would produce.

A full two gallon tank plus an empty 6 gallon tank would probably weigh the same or less than a full 5 gallon tank, which is probably too much fuel for most average motorists anyways with a vehicle like the Volt.
