Although the best road trips involve a hefty dose of spontaneity, a little bit of advance planning can help keep you safe, sound, and on-budget. If you’re thinking about driving across a vast distance like the USA or Australia, you’ll need to decide what type of car to drive, how much fuel you’ll need, and where you’ll stop along the way. You may derive inspiration from this infographic, which details a journalist’s drive from Brisbane to Perth in a Mazda 6. He makes the journey in only five days, using 312 litres (82 gallons) of diesel to cover the 4500 kilometer (2,7916 mile) distance.
