    Sugar in my fuel tank ....

    Hello everybody,

    Sorry for not having posted since a long time,but vacations near St Tropez, you forget all other things ... lol
    But at my return, one very nasty event occured : someone who loves me a lot have broken my tank fuel trap and put some sugar in my fuel tank .....
    My car has only 4000 km and I have to change the whole motor, or even....
    Insurance is here fortunately.
    Nevermind, If I find this [censored] bastard ..... you can't ever imagine what I'm able to do !!!
    But my issue is the following : do you know a supplier for fuel tank cap with additionall key ??
    If you precisely see at the tank trap, the lock is really fragile and I don't want that this problem one more time happens !
    If you have some adresses, it will be very kind of you .....
    Thanks !!!

    Re: Sugar in my fuel tank ....

    That s***s big time... but how could he or she open the tank (without a key) ??

    Re: Sugar in my fuel tank ....

    well thierry ...the person who did it doesnt like u at all...u have to think if in st trop u stole somebody's girl or broke a girls heart... anyway you can find fuel cap with lock..its standard they all fit to each other

    Re: Sugar in my fuel tank ....

    Very simply : If you see how the trap is locked .... It's just a small piece of plastic, very easy to broke !!!
    It take perhaps 20 seconds to break the small plastic barrier, and the fuel cap have no key, so it's very easy to fill the tank with sugar ....

    Hell hath no fury like a scorned woman. Ex-girlfriends can be cruel.

    True but why take it out on the car, the car is innocent

    Re: Sugar in my fuel tank ....

    Yes....but the car is competition for the girl friend!!!

    Oh how I long for a time when girlfriends and cars can live in harmony together.

    Thierry, I hope for his/her sake, you never come into contact with the criminal who would be heartless enough to do such a thing.
    On second thought, maybe you should find out who did it. He/she would deserve whatever punishment was received.

    Re: Sugar in my fuel tank ....

    That just blows.. sorry to hear about it Thierry and I hope your car recovers. It really got me thinking about a locked cap.

    Hey Buddy, very sorry to hear what happened. Check the Private message I sent.
