Mr. Sand is going on a trip to the beach. The total distance to the beach is \(263\) km. His car has a \(60\) L gas tank and can travel \(640\,000\) m on that tank of gas.

Suppose that there are two service stations available to Mr. Sand. Station A charges \(\$40\) for \(25\) L of gas, while Station B charges \(\$51\) for \(30\) L of gas.

Determine the cost of the gas for his trip if he fills up at StationĀ A versus the cost if he fills up at Station B. Which is the more economical?
