Two RTL-Es depart from the same place and drive opposite directions at 60 mph. The road is straight and level. 'A' drives east and '2' drives west.

There is a steady 20 mph wind blowing from east to west.

After traveling 100 miles, they both stop for the night. In the morning, the air is dead calm. Both trucks return to the starting point at the same speed as yesterday, 60 mph. Meanwhile, a third Ridgeline, 'III,' leaves from the starting point at 60 mph and drives 50 miles west, then 100 miles east, then 50 miles back to the start.

No trickery intended here -- any conditions not specified are the same for all 3 trucks.

All trucks have driven 200 miles at 60 mph. Compare their gas mileages. Show your work. >:)
