time to use my locking gas cap

My car does not have a gas cap.  Inside the fuel filler doors is some sort of cap/gasket/seal thing that closes off the filler neck.  I have a button to push in the map pocket of the driver door to open the fuel filler door.

We once had a car with the tank filler hidden behind the rear license plate.  That was surprisingly good place to hide it.  You did risk someone being overly aggressive trying to pull up instead of flip down the plate, but I remember hearing my mom tell the gas attendant "it's behind the plate" quite a bit as a kid.

The juvenile delinquents on my caseload educated me in the 1970's.

You know the quickest way around that locking gas cap? An icepick to the gas tank. Walk away as it drips into a container/gas can, then return and collect you full container. 

Hole in gas tank that needs to be repaired? Not their problem.

On the news this morning they were talking about gas siphoning, apparently it is becoming common again 

I guess it's a thing to bypass the filler neck and directly drill out the gas from the bottom of the tank

 

Drill baby drill??

Some of the stuff I've seen on the morning "news" is pretty pretty pretty far fetched.  Vodka tampons anybody?

I prefer my vodka (or bourbon in the day) in the wiper fluid reservoir. Route the tubing into the glove box and you have a power dispenser.:rolleyes:
