The Case of the MPG Gone MIA

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. He bought a locking gas cap. The son and his friend were siphoning gas out of his dad's car so they could joyride in the other kid's car!

TOM: Wow. And they thought the old man wouldn't notice.

RAY: But he did. Who's our winner?

TOM: The winner is Kate Bailey from Frederick, Colorado. And for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Kate's going to get a $26 gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at, with which she can get Maternal Combustion, our Car Talk Mother's Day album.

RAY: Congratulations, Kate!
