Well go out to the driveway this morining and notice the car cover has been lifted in the rear. So I go check it out and sure enough the gas cap is off. I have no iudea if they syphoned gas or pured something in. There wasnt any residue on the fill neck but that doesnt mean I couldnt see it either.
Filled a police report already and I'm guessing I need to contact my home owners insurance and find out what they will pay for? I'm guessing the tank should come out and be checked and cleaned possibly?
Theres no battery in it so I have no idea how much gas is in or was in it but my wifes car which parks closer to the street seemed to be left untouched but her's is an 03 and mine is a 99. Do the 03's GM's have an anti syphon screen and the 99's dont? She has a full tank still and is way more vulnerable than my car but she didnt get home til after midnight so maybe it happened before?
I tried to find a locker like 5 years ago and then dont make them for fbody's, unless someone came out with them. If it was syphoned I dont care, it having to pull the tank and clean it I dont want to deal with. Not sure what to do? Anyone have an optical scope ?
soon as my car was vandalized by the ex's new hubby I invested in a locking gas cap. I feel pretty safe now. much recommended. got mine at schucks for cheap and 2 keys so one for each set of keys so I dont end up locking myself out of my gas tank. good luck, hope for the best. ~Guy

My 01 has a spring loaded check valve that makes it virtually impossible to siphon unless they had a VERY small hose. I took this off so I could siphon gas out. You can remove it from the inside if you pull on it hard enough.

Yeah i need to get one on both of our cars. Gas is just getting too expensive and they both seem to go through it faster than they should sitting over night. Although we still have to track down a leak in the grand prix. Can't fill it more than half a tank or it starts spilling out.
