.... George; some gas joints from the /5 era are abandoned on rt50 these days. Where you can get in fuel problems is if you take the side trip
into Great Basin NP and "enjoy" the road going in & out...and UP the mountain!! If westbound at least, suddenly the distance to ELY, as stated
on the sign just west of park entry road... where the fuel light comes on just after passing it... well, you slow down for about an hour
