#2109: The Roof Snow Theory

Feb 27, 2021
We kick off with a proposal that could revolutionize snow measurement, if it wasn’t completely bogus. Later, the bogosity continues as Tom and Ray try to explain why Anne’s dashboard gauges all stopped working after she filled up her gas tank at a Shell station—twice! Also, Kay’s 38-year-old daughter left Mom’s Explorer running all night, and Kay’s wondering if she needs to blow out the car’s engine or the cobwebs in her daughter’s brain; 14-year-old Matthew’s struggles to wash his parents’ car could be a valuable life lesson in how to get out of doing chores forever; and will Rush ever be able to get the smell of rancid butter out of his Land Rover? All this and more, this week on the Best of Car Talk.
