Okay, actual tank size of a '75 300D is 17.2 gallons. With an average fuel economy of 30mpg I'd have to fill up 5.5 so we'll say 6 times to be on the safe side. With an average price of diesel around $3.00 that would mean driving from Reno to Boston would cost around $300 in fuel. Two one way plane tickets for me and a friend $300, Hotel $100. Food $50. That would be a total of $750 vs. $1200 for shipping it and you get an adventure. Leave Friday drive Saturday and Sunday non stop maybe can make it Monday morning. I think I know what to do. Now I just have to convince the guy I'm serious about this.
