    I suggest you look at the writers name. It's a joke surely.

    I'm sure if you do a bit of googling you'll find a true case of an American woman who did this with an RV and won damages from the RV maker.

    Snopes is your friend:
    https://www.snopes.com/autos/theft/siphon.asp
    Versions of this story have been circulating since at least 1991 :whistle:.
    Indeed since the 70's fuel crisis has anyone ever tried to steal fuel?

    ...and variations of the "Cruise Control" legend have been around as long as the facility had been fitted to RV's
    https://www.snopes.com/autos/techno/cruise.asp

    But folk have short memories & these thing come around as often as Christmas :rolleyes:.

    At least the Suffolk Gazette weren't trying to pretend it was true.
