Gas run to station?

Being that gas isn't getting any cheaper, I'm taking my
MH to the station to top it off. And my 74 Merc Monterey
460 ci. economy car The MH is slow and the Merc is fast.

I guess I have two big sleds to feed so I best keep my
part-time job so I can afford to run them.

At age 68 I sure would like to retire again.

My '74 LTD open road would do, on a warm day, downhill, wind behind me and in neutral - maybe 11. My '76 F250 with all of the CA emissions junk removed would do 17-18 mpg empty, 13 hauling my 30' 5er. Then there is my current F350 w V10 and today's junk gas........ fugly
