You can trust your uncle but not my geography. Texas to Chicago is quite a distance isn't it? Call your trusted Uncle and ask him what he thinks about it

It is and that's why I'm on here to see what i can do. My uncles out of town for a week so there's no way for me to reach him on his phone, and I want to head out tomorrow. So what do you guys recommend?

SO I am guessing it is not just a loose gas cap and I am also guessing that you basically understand where to put in the gas but not a whole lot of maintenance experience - so like it or lump it- stay where you are! Wait untill your Uncle gets back and call him.
