Santiago to Ushuaia, help with route needed

Can anyone give sound advice on best route planning from Santiago to Ushuaia for maximum scenery on interesting paved and reasonable condition unpaved roads considering fuel tank range of 200 km. Also, what info on "walk-on" passengers for Antarctic or similar cruise please.

Thumbs up Carretera Austral

Make sure you don't miss the Carretera Austral from Puerto Mont to Villa O'Higgins, Pinochets gravel road and stunning views!

my experience in 2004

Don´t know if it is too late. I did that trip in december 2004.
The route was:
Santiago - Mendoza (Arg) - Neuquén - San Martin de los Andes - Osorno (Chi) - Pto Montt - Chaiten (by ferry) - Cohcrane - Bajo Caracoles (Arg) - Calafate - (Perito Moreno) - Pto Natales (Chi) - Estrecho de Magallanes - Rio Grande (arg) - Ushuaia - Pto Natales - Pto Montt (in 3 day ferry) - Santiago.

Aconcagua is amazing. The carretera Austral is spectacular. It took one month.
Most of the carretera austral was gravel at that time, I don´t know now.
I strongly recommend it.
