Gas Leak? in '73 Mobile Taveler
I'm new here as well as new to RVs. I just purchased a '73 Dodge mobile traveler. The previous owners thought it had a small gas tank, saying they had to stop a lot for gas. I filled it and it's a 20 gallon tank. When I drove it across town it smelled like gas inside and I burned 1/4 tank of gas during a 20 min drive.
I understand that these don't have the best gas mileage, but I feel something is not right. First thing that comes to mind is a potential gas leak. Anybody have a similar experience? I only paid $1,300 for it with 62,000 original miles. So I'm not opposed to putting some money into it, but only to a point.
I appreciate any feed back you all may have.
