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.
