With gas still being high it is not uncommon for people to siphon gas from people’s tanks while they are at work, the store, or anywhere else really. Luckily manufacturers are making it more difficult to steal fuel, but it is still easier than it should be.
Get a Locking Gas Cap
This is the simplest and most effective method of preventing someone from stealing your fuel. Locking fuel caps are a small price to pay for peace of mind. When you buy one be sure to buy a high-quality one. Cheap locking gas caps can strip their gears and will no longer engage when they are unlocked. This means you will likely not be able to get it off without serious effort. Save yourself the trouble and buy a good, high-quality one.
Swap Fuel Badges
If you drive a vehicle that has both gasoline and diesel variants, then grab a diesel badge online and put it on your vehicle. For example, if you drive a Ram then get a Cummins badge online and attached it to your truck. This will deter thieves who will think that you have diesel. So, what happens if someone still steals your fuel? Well, chances are they will ruin their vehicle or at least need some major repairs.
Park in a Highly Visible Area
This is the simplest way to keep someone from stealing your gas, and it is completely free. Whenever you go somewhere try to park in an area with high visibility and a lot of people traffic. The more people there are around the less likely someone is to try to siphon your gas. Remember, thieves are cowards, so there is definite safety in numbers.
When it comes to protecting your hard-earned fuel from thieves, there are a few things you can do. The easiest and least obtrusive ways are to purchase a locking gas cap and park in high visibility areas.
