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?
