You are living in the 22nd century. The fuel prices are unimaginably high and it is very rare to get, so the Government has introduced some new laws to control fuel smuggling.
Rule 1: One cannot carry more fuel than their vehicle's tank capacity (fuel cannot be carried by hand or any other method. The only way to transfer fuel from one place to another place is by filling it in the vehicles tank and driving it to the destination. Then the fuel can be drained from the tank).
Rule 2: All vehicles have to be run on their own fuel (one cannot fill the tank and then push the vehicle, or pull with another vehicle to the destination or use alternate energy).
Rule 3: Fuel can only be sold at the Fuel Market run by the Government.
Now, you have 300 liters of petrol at your home (saved by your ancestors). You have decided to sell it at the Fuel Market. But the problem is that the Fuel Market is 1000 km away from your home. Your car has a tank capacity of 100 liters and a mileage of 10 km/liter. You know that there are storage stations run by old mafia members every 1 km and they will charge 1 million dollars for storage (you can drain as much amount of fuel from your car and store there if you want). Once you reach the Fuel Market, you will get a price of 1 million dollars per liter of petrol. What is the maximum amount of money you can make by selling the fuel at the Fuel Market and how you can achieve it?
IMPORTANT: You have to use your car. You cannot borrow or buy another car with more tank capacity and/or mileage. Also you can abandon your car after selling the fuel if you want since your car costs only a few dollars
