    Default OT: Vengeance will be mine

    After getting a gas can stolen for the second time in two years, I'm
    going to buy a decoy gas can. It will be full of gas, but not for me
    to use, because instead of regular gasoline, it'll be full of Coleman
    gas. That should reduce the octane rating of the gas in whatever car
    it's put into, burning up the valves and maybe even damaging the
    pistons and/or cylinders. I'll even use permanent marker to write on
    it, "Gas only, no 2 cycle oil." The thought of doing one, two, maybe
    even three thousand dollars damage to the thief's car makes me very
    happy. At minimum the gas tank with probably end up being drained,
    and that's a couple hundred. The asshole will never know exactly what
    happened.

    Why not just dissolve sugar in gasoline? Presugared gas! Better than
    pouring sugar into someone's gastank!

    And a LOT cheaper than 5 gallons of Coleman fuel!

    Bad idea. A person stealing gas is also probably driving a borrowed car.
    More than likely you are ****ing over someone innocent.

    Gas and sugar, maybe some water to disolve the sugar, but not enough
    to where the car won't run so it can burn more sugar.

    The can should read "UNLEADED GAS ONLY"

    The incidence of gas theft goes way up when gas prices go up. The
    likelihood that the gas is being put into a stolen car is low. If
    it's a borrowed car, then the person who lent the car to the thief
    will indeed get ****ed over.

    It gums it up, necessitating full takedown and cleaning. Nothing short
    of that will ever get all the combusted sugar deposits off the
    engine's internal parts.

    If I recall correctly, sugar will not dissolve in gasoline. You might be
    able to get some sugar in solution by first dissolving the sugar in
    water then mixing the solution in alcohol and then mixing the
    alcohol/sugar/water mix into the gas. I can't say that I know what
    naphtha will do to a car engine.

    Are you sure that sugar is soluble in gasoline?

    (Why not fill the can 3/4 full of water and float some gasoline on top
    so it'll smell right?)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coleman_fuel

    Seems like a gallon of white gas would lower the octane significantly
    enough to seriously damage the engine, even if the gallon were added
    to a tank that already had 10 gallons of regular gas in it.

    Years ago I had to work 3-4 times a year with one of our special crews.
    The supervisor at that location was a total jerk. He was convinced that
    someone was stealing gas from the jerry cans and, jerk that he was
    sabotaged the gas by putting some dye crystals in it. The dye would turn
    florescent green when it was in contact with water and would burn okay
    in engines, but it quickly clogged fuel filters. One of the crew knew
    that he had done it, so he made sure that gas ended up in the
    equipment... lawn mowers, trimmers, pumps. The road mechanic had to
    make several trips out to repair the equipment. It took a long time to
    purge the stuff out of the gas cans and the gas tanks on the various
    pieces of equipment. It backfired on that jerk of a supervisor. He
    denied that he had done it, but... he was a jerk.

    It appears that the sugar will never make it to the engine. How about
    dissolving styrofoam in the gas?

    The reality of actually doing this is that you could be sued for that,
    and would surely lose. This is a classic example case that is
    discussed in all the tort law textbooks.

    Leaving a can of gas in the back of your accessible pick up truck
    which:

    1. You have falsely labeled, and
    2. With the knowledge that it's common for it to be stolen, and
    3. With the intent that it gets stolen, and
    4. Admitting it in advance on Usenet using your full name including
    middle initial...

    You wouldn't stand a chance in civil court.

    Which is why I mentioned dissolving it in water first.

    ObFood: Use HFCS or Karo Syrup instead. Problem.. uh... solved.

    We don't know that yet. Apparently the researchers never got that
    far. Which is why I said to dissolve the sugar in water first. Or
    use high fructose corn or karo syrup.

    Some people in the old hood was stealing gas by using a cordless drill and
    drilling a hole in the gas tank and putting a can under it. Costing the
    owner hundreds in repairs. Locking gas caps no longer works.

    I think gasoline powered cars will become history anyways. Now how to steal
    electricity?
