This week on The Best of Car Talk, Rick's diesel Rabbit ran out of fuel and the only liquid Rick had on hand was a bottle of scotch. Could he have poured the scotch into the tank or would Rick have been better off drinking it and waiting for the tow truck?
Elsewhere, a tree fell on Murli's Corolla (we think it made a sound), and he doesn't know whether to replace the roof or have it straightened; Sally's steering column is sending smoke signals; and Kerry needs help navigating the "Pit of Despair," a giant water-filled pothole in her building's parking lot.
Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Tom and Ray helped Kathy lead her son to victory in the Pinewood Derby, and how much he lost by. All of this, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: February 17, 2018]
