Revek: One morning my uncle discovered a gas can, a hose and a pile of puke next to his RV. The thief had apparently picked the wrong hole to siphon from.
orclover: OlderGuy: Proper terminology for a siphon hose is a North Carolina Credit Card.. and newer fuel tanks have anti syphon baffles built in... and by blowing into the hose first, you can tell if the hose actually got into the gas...We always referred to it as a "alabama gas card" in Texas. Also started using it at age 8. I gave a demonstration to my 9 year old a few months ago when I had to drain the gas out of my harley. I think all kids need to learn the proper technique in case they get stuck somewhere without money.
Deathfrogg: They caught one kid in my high school siphoning other kid's and some of the teacher's cars. They caught him, because he'd strolled off after getting the siphon going, and lit a smoke. Set his mouth and hands on fire and showed up in his next class with his hair all burned off the front of his head.Greg wasn't that bright.
