  1. I'm not completely sure what you're asking here. If you have to transport 50,000 L of fuel, you better have 50,000 L stored at the end of this.

    If you're asking how much you needed to have to deliver 50,000 L, you'd have to factor in the gas consumption. 

    It's going to take multiple trips as the tanker can only hold 12,500 and you lose the gas to drive between the two points. 20 L per 100 km over 2500 km. That's 500 L to go one way. Then the tanker has to go back. So you can deliver 11,500 L per run. 4 runs will get you 46,000 L (and consume 4,000 L). Last run will take 4,500 L assuming you don't plan to take the tanker anywhere after that. I come up with 54,500 L.

    Assuming "X beat Y and Z" allows X to beat Y but lose to Z.

    Ed, Jim, Bill, Tom

    Ed:
    Bill wasn't last.

    I was the winner.
    Jim finally broke 100.
    I shot 98.

    Jim:
    I beat Bill 
    and Ed.
    The last hole was not my best.

    We didn't all break 100.
    Tom wasn't the winner.

    Bill:
    I beat Jim and Tom.
    Ed shot 111.
    Jim took 6 on the last hole.
    None of us broke 100.

    Tom:
    Ed beat Bill.
    I was the winner.
    Bill placed between Ed and Jim.

    The last hole was Jim's best.

    With the previous assumption about the meaning of between.

    Initials occurring in odd positions of the alphabet must have held even positions in the circle. 

    That doesn't give any information about the team. The order could be Taylor, Miller,  Brown, Gerson Jenkins, Adams, Babcock, Carver, Randolph, Smith, Flynn, Sawyer, Timmons, Myers, Lucas, Morton, Peters, Young. The first 9 could be Cons and they still wouldn't call their initials. 


  5. Well, there's an even number of players and an even number of letters. Once you've hit the 13th round, they start repeating letters. So if they alternate, all the Cons will have even letter (B, D, F, etc) initials and call odd letters. Prose have odd letter (A, C, E, ...) initials and call even.
