I'm rather certain you're conflating "earning 5%" with "5X card."
You sure it is me? They asked you which card gives 5x on gas and you answer with needing two cards and booking airfare that gives you %.

Lets make this simple. If you are going to MS this card then add it. If you are looking for a card (to MS) that gives 5x or 5% currently on gas don't waste your time.  :)

I said you can earn 5% cash back with $0 fee. I said nothing about 1 card. That was you, attributing to me, something I did not say.

Considering you can earn 5% cash back with $0 annual fee, you'd have to spend nearly $150,000 per year or $12,500 per month on gas, and that's only to break even.  You would not earn a penny more than simply using the cash back card until that threshold.

Question that was asked:
So which card that is good for MS and gives 5X on gas?
...and your answer:
Propel combined with WF Visa can give 5.25% CB towards travel with $0 AF.

Hopefully everyone has enough information now that we killed the horse to make an informed decision if it works for you or not.

Question that was asked:...and your answer:

Exactly. Except you're proving my point and undercutting yours: you're quoting another example my having never represented 5X on a single card.

Him: "Tell me where I can find the best steak."

Me:  "A and B are two excellent places."

You: "See! You didn't name only one place! Even though he asked for the best!"

You won't let it go so I will play along. Is there any card (MSing) currently I can get 5x or 5% on gas?

Correct if I'm wrong but I think that's a plus at least for me.

Currently it's $175 so just by spending 10k the $120 more paid for itself by getting 1 point more.

Just something I noted, there may be nothing here. One of the 4x categories is "U.S. purchases made directly from select technology providers of computer hardware, software, and cloud solutions" which includes newegg which sells some GC online.
