Answer:  FILL UP THE TANK

(Not that you CAN buy them, but if you COULD, you just know some no-dick d-bag WOULD buy a friggin’ tank!  You know it!  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “praat” before.  I always have to check myself with “khaki”.  I keep wanting to spell it “kakhi” like in Gandhi.  The answer letter layout made for a wonderful jumble, but Jeff’s great cartoon, and the very carefully worded clue/question made this wonderfully long answer a gimme.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
