#1136: Don't Drive Like Tom!

Sep 03, 2011
This week on Car Talk, we have further proof that no one should drive like Tom Magliozzi! Our irate listeners rant about racking up moving violations after following Tom's screwball EZ Pass theory. Never deterred by criticism, Tom plows forward in doling out questionable automotive advice. Should Sam in Pennsylvania dump maple syrup and a couple of Tums into his fuel tank, to guarantee long engine life? Then, it's off to Montana where Susan has buzzards delivering car parts to her remote home, and Ethan needs help remembering driving directions. All that, plus why Men are from GM and Women are from Ford, this week on Car Talk.
