Gas thieves up Mt. Cheam......grrrrrrrr......

My wife and I took our 7 and 9 year old kids for a hike up Cheam peak today. Had an awsome day untill we got in the truck and started heading home. A short distance from the parking lot I knoticed the gas guage was plastered on empty with the fuel light on, some fuckin little thief drained my tank .......Not a good feeling with kids in the truck late in the day, and to boot a no cell service area. Some how we managed to make it to vedder on fumes.

It is getting bad enough that we are going to have to start protecting our fuel tanks like "Mad Max" did.
Glad you made it out without having to make the kids walk though.

Yea its pretty bad when they ruin ur good days by stealing ur gas. Though I thought the price of gas would of increased more this summer but my guess is next summer will be much worse but it will get much worse they can't gas and go at the gas stations any more so they need to steal credit cards or get it from the tank.

that happened to a friends dad...only the bastard would only steal a little bit every few days, so he set up a mini spy cam pointing at his truck and found the approximate time that he was doing it. So the next night he hid in the bushes and when the theif came he jumped out, grabbed him, tied him to a tree and called the cops.

The theif tried to press charges against him for assault, but it was all on camera and he only got roughed up a little bit getting him to the tree so there was no case

Locking cap only works so long till every one has one they start putting holes in the bottom of the tank and take what they need and let the rest drain in to the ground.

Its gets real bad when the prices go up they will get the balls to pull up to a tank lid at a station in the middle of the night and use a long hose with a hand pump and pull it out of the in ground tanks. Always having to sell new fill caps so the sites can replace the ones the thieves busted trying to get at the tank.
