    When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street by sucking on a hose, he got much more than he bargained for.
    Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage.
    A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline, but he plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake.
    The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.

    :Eeek:Nice story, but I'm sure it has to be a myth, you could not put a hose in the black tank, and if you did, you would then have to pull a lever to release the poo:Smile: Unless of course it was a toilet system that I have not seen before.

    It is an urban myth according to Snopes - http://www.snopes.com/autos/theft/siphon.asp
