Great Idea #3

Inspired by Dad and Celia returning from their holiday to the NT to find the 80L fuel tank on the CMS commodore drained dry by some petrol siphoning thief, I bring you my latest great idea which brings a whole new meaning to ‘electric car’ and ‘WARNING: This car is electronically protected’.

Electrified fuel cap!

Now I realise the interesting possibilities of mixing fuel and electricity but something has to be done. Supposedly it’s becoming more frequent in the inner city. Surely a clever electrician could hook something up – sort of like an old school kill switch (heh heh – another phrase that could be reinterpreted ;)) before immobilisers were around.

This guy thinks through the locking fuel cap option and then tank drilling/puncturing is suggested in one of the comments – which Dad was concerned may have happened to them!!!

Any other great ideas?

    Maybe electromagnetic fuel cover with PIN. Loved the link to guys in USA. Will get my muddleheaded thinking cap on kesho.

    Man that sucks – no pun intended.

    There is more and more inspiration to go car free…

    Well here in NZ, fuel is climbing… horrendously… can’t spell “exponetionally”?? Currently $2.16 per litre and even if that”s NZ$ …it’s too much. Anything that can help is good.
