The folks at Hi-Noon Petroleum in Montana have a new way to turn a dinosaur into gasoline.



They're offering a $250 gas card for information leading to the safe return of Dino, a 12-foot (3.6-meter)-long fiberglass Sinclair dinosaur that disappeared on June 21 from the Crossroads Travel Center west of Missoula.



"We just wonder what happened to him," Hi-Noon marketing manager Earl Allen said Friday. "It's a little odd for him to just walk away."



The 6-foot (1.8-meter) tall green dinosaur sat on a hill overlooking Interstate 90 for at least five years, Allen said, with occasional appearances in University of Montana Homecoming parades.



"That was his home for a number of years," Allen said.



Allen said taking the prehistoric icon would have been a bit of a project. "It's not like you can just throw him in the back of a pickup," he said.
