Default Bad trick or not ?

A couple years ago we were getting gas siphoned out of are tanks .So I put out a small gas can ,like I left it by my truck with some gas in it but it also was 3/4 full of water .Needless to say they stole it :tonka: and the siphoning seemed to stop .

Just thought I would pass this little but effective tip a long with the high prices of gas and all .

People were drilling into gas tanks at my old apartments in kzoo (This was 2 or so years ago...ya' know...when everyone was freaking out about gas prices...).

I should have left them some watery gas.

I imagine a gas can place with an anti-personnel mine beneath it would be a little extreme?

I hate people that mess with your shit when you're not around. Some fucksticks keep visiting my neighborhood and egg the cars that are parked outside. I believe if I caught those punks, or anyone stealing fuel from me, I would end up in jail.

How about mixing urine/feces in a gas can and rigging it with compressed air so it blows all over them when they open it to smell it?

I'd camo/ghillie suit up, hide in the bushes with my 1100fps pellet rifle and wait for them.

i guess i dont get why it stopped... you're probably not going to sabotage the gas in your gas tank

my guess is that the kids that were doing it must have figured out that when dad told them there tank had 3 gallons of water in it.And when asked were they were getting gas from , they put 2 & 2 together

the new thing in the hood is to steal catalytic converters.

yeah, even if you lock the gas cap, they can still punch the tank itself.

I don't think its cruel to mix the gas with water, I think its justice
