Gasoline Theft - Drilled Fuel Tank


POS VETT

Recommended Posts

This photo was taken earlier this week. A '21 Toyota Highlander came in for a fuel tank replacement. The damage costs just about $1200 in parts and $1080 in labor. The tank has a capacity of 17.9 gallons. At about $4/gallon, the gasoline was worth $72 if the tank was full. The numbers boggle my mind.

Can you see the hole?

I have ben seeing this in the news. With the prices you quoted I would have a melt down. Not saying you are out of line on price just the whole situation. Glad I park ours in a garage.

what would it take like half an hour to drain 17 gallons through that little hole?

did they hack off the cats while they waited for the fuel to drain? good thing the crackheads haven't figured out multi-tasking yet

They may blow up with fumes and a spark...
