Problem solving hot rod chassis parts for 40 years.
Another one of those “we should have gotten gas when we saw gas stations at that exit way back there” statements. Saw a small sign at an exit off I-40 east that there was gas & food here. Sign said “open” but everything was locked up. Unlike the station in Texas where we could still get gas, it was not possible here. Drove more slowly (60 MPH) and got to the next available gas at Tucumcari NM. Drove 228 miles since last fill-up.
