2 Gallons and a Half Pint

Me: I've gotta' stop in this gas station and put five bucks in the tank.
Julio: What tank?
Me: The gas tank.
Julio: Why do you have to put five bucks in the tank?
Me: 'Cause we're almost out of gas and I want to make it home for naps.
Julio: And if you don't put in five bucks then we won't make it to home?
Me: Probably not.
Julio: But why do you have to put money in there?
Me: Oh, I see. I'm not really putting the money into the tank. I'm going to use the money to buy gas and put the gas in the tank.
Julio: Are you going to use five dollars?
Me: Probably ten. Actually, I'm going to use my debit card.
Julio: Oh. (pause) Does Deb have a debit card?
Me: I don't know.  Probably.
Julio: DOES she?
Me: Yes.
