    Well it has happened again. The wife got in her car today and it is out of gas. Kinda funny considering she filled it up yesterday. This is the third time this has happend to our vehicles. I guess it's time to introduce someone to my Colt Defender.

    Some folks are just sorry people.:angry:

    I like the idea of water in the gas can..... You'll most likely find your suspect has turned into a victim with his vehicle broke down on the side of the road....:smile2:

    I agree with Richards idea and the locking gas cap. If you catch this guy you could be doing him a favor, before he graduates to bigger crime.

    have you got sumpin besides your cars that you could spare for a few days if ya do you can catch them easy enough.drain the gas and fill tank with diesel soon as its gone start looking for a car or truck that is smoking and missing like heck.worked for me and the kids learnt a lesson.

    I like the water and diesel antidote. also used motor oil in there, it smokes pretty good, also sometimes don't run too well. Antifreeze has sometimes worked too. There is some thought that diesel might rot the gas lines too.

    I thought that I had been hit on 2 consecutive nights also. Turned out not to be theft though. Ethanol in the gas had softened fuel line and was leaking. New vehicles may have alcohol safe fuel lines, but my '98 Ford work van didn't.
    It doesn't get parked on concrete so I didn't see a wet puddle under it.

    I have had issues with fuel on the outboards, but never thought about the effect of ethanol on my vehicles.
