Hello there, @sam9818 ! If I may join in... I think you already have part of your answer: *la* is indeed a direct object pronoun that substitutes *la gasolina*. Well done so far! Now, two things are left: (1) What is the correct order once *la gasolina* is replaced by *la*? (2) Why do we use *la* as a pronoun in that sentence? === (1) ANSWER for (1): Let's look at a similar example that will help: *Compro el pan en la estacion de servicio.* --> *el pan* is substituted by "lo". So: *Lo compro en la estacion de servicio.* This will work for your exercise too... but using *la* instead of *lo*. === (2) ANSWER for (2): *el pan* is masculine singular (in English, "the bread"). so this is why it is substituted by the *lo* pronoun. So, what about *la gasolina*...? *la gasolina* is feminine singular (in English, "the gasoline"), so this is why.... ... I tihnk you know now what the reason is, don't you? Hope this helps! Blessings
