Default MOTHER****ER!!!!!!!!! SOMEONE PUT SOMETHING IN MY GAS TANK!!!!!!

last night, i was running low on gas, i went to the gas station, but my atm card was declined, so i couldn't get gas, took the car home, fuel needle was extremely low, warning says 15 miles range left.


today, got in the car, it won't ****ing start. try about 20 times, then just let it sit, then try a couple more times, it starts. battery is full. look on the gas gauge, needle is showing about a quarter tank, and range says about 55 miles. huh. interesting. so i take my car to go get gas. its idling pretty low, about 100 rpms lower than usual. hmmm. interesting. i open the gas cap. the little metal flip tab underneath the screw off cap, well, its ****ing torn off. fantastic.





does anyone know how to tell if theres something in the tank other than gasoline? i loaded my 87 tune instead of 93 and im taking it super easy on the car. im so ****ing nervous.




where can i get a locking gas cap?

I wouldn’t drive the car until you drain and flush the fuel system. I can only see someone putting something in your tank if it would damage your engine.

I have a locking gas cap just for this reason. Basically I **** people off all the time and most people are cowards and would rather sugar your gas tank than risk a punch in the nose.

i second that.

i live in a gated community, can't think of anyone i've pissed off lately......other than an extremely riced out pontiac sunbird who was tailing me for 10 miles on the freeway, i brakechecked him. thats about all i can think of. and theres no way he could know where i live.



i can't think of who would do this. but a lot of people in my neighboorhood have recently had their car broken into and stufff.

yes, thats a good point. but, i wouldn't expect that somone would go through the trouble of doing that, can't think of anyone i've pissed off driving-wise.


plus i live in a gated community, which, while not making it impossible, makes it harder.

The best way to tel is to get a fuel sample and see if it seperates. The only thing I really don't like about the locking gas cap is that a see quite a few that come into my work that have evap leaks do to the cap.
I would go the route of a locking fuel door.

well i let the car idle a little bit, drove it a little bit, really, it seems 100% normal now. no missing, no skipping, runs the same as always, no CEL, car seems fine to me. im hoping whatever they put into the tank was an inert substance, thats what it seems like.

I live in the capitol of gated communities in Williamsburg, VA. (a.k.a. 'Land of the Rich and the Poor') and I can get into any of them with ease.
'I have reservations at the restaurant ...'
'I have a tee time at the golf course in 5 minutes ...'
'I have a meeting at the country club conference center ...'
'I have a pizza for 123 xyz street ...'
etc.
Only once have I ever seen a gate attendant actually call the homeowner (and most of the closed community security officers here are fully trained and state licensed police officers, not rent-a-cops).
And ... if someone was pissed off enough to dump something in your gas tank then they likely already had the motivation to spend a few bucks on a dmv search.

Huh.....Interesting......My 05 doesn't have the little metal flapper under the gas cap........Are you sure it was there to start with?? Also, did you do any quick turns on the way home, to where the gas sloshed from one side of the saddle tank to the other???? Just curious........

Even in gated or good communities, you have little punks that are out to be dicks no matter where they live. Flush it out, then lock it.

I guess it pays to be a nice guy huh. Myth Busers busted sugar in the gas tank. Doesn't do a thing.

Just get a hose cut a 4" segment and blow till you start removing gas. If not then just buy one of the hoses /w pump at your local parts supply usually go for around $25.
