Parting shot

What to do about such pesky car problems as a defunct fuel pump or a leaky gas tank?

In Havana, during our last few hours in Cuba, I spotted this clever solution, which is fairly common on the island according to our driver. You just take a plastic jug, fill it with gasoline, set up a syphon with a piece of hose–and just feed gasoline directly into your carburetor or wherever it’s supposed to go. Just be sure to hang on to the plastic jug–and stay away from anyone smoking.
