Just post this so the owner of them can find them easier, I don't know whether to charge him by the hour or by the percentage of fuel he's had nicked

They're very interesting Biff. Where do they fit into the scheme of things? I guess it's fuel being nicked in yards? From boats or fixed tanks?

The boats in the water, twin big outboards, he's losing about 100L a week, we think they are rowing over and siphoning into cans in there tender, I made these to go in the filler tubes which are locked in the console, the rule is think like a criminal to stop them

Nice. Buncha barstewards. Hopefully they don't cut the fuel lines at the engine and pump it out...

I assume he has confirmed it's not a leak?

Fuel hose is easy - a shut- off by the tank and a webcam to catch them as they go in looking for it.

Other option I guess is re-plumb for an evening & divert the filler hose into a bucket of p!ss....

OR fuel mixed with brake fluid...

You'll soon know who's been pinching it by the clouds of smoke as their engine expires

Indeed, but they also have to suck the end of the hose to start the syphon......
