Neither will run out of gas, that is assuming of course that they stay on course and left with a full tank of gas. And of course assuming that they are both driving split type IIs. It's only 150 miles from Marshall to Dallas, therefore they could each make the entire trip since each would drive less than the range of 189 miles. Now of course this also assumes that neither is following Paul Smith who would probably take a wrong turn and wind up in Nacogdoches or some other way out place, in which case they would never meet up and both run out of gas.

"If Sharon leaves at 5PM and heads east to Tyler from Dallas and Steve heads West from Marshall when will they meet up? Which one will run out of gas first?"

`LOL`
