comment How important is a fuel cap?
@Brian I thought that was a joke, I didn't realize they actually made those, or that fuel theft was an actual problem. Haven't heard of anyone in my life that's had that happen.

Ah, I didn't know those even existed. I guess whether it's a problem depends on where you live. I've never heard of anyone having fuel stolen before so I've never heard of protection against it either.

+1 however I still don't understand how having a cap protects against fuel theft? Is someone really going to flip the outer flap then see a fuel cap and decide it's not worth the extra 2 seconds to unscrew the cap? Am I missing something?

I know it was probably meant as a joke, but I doubt the 2-5 seconds it takes to unscrew the cap would stop a hypothetical fuel siphoner, especially since they'll need to flip the hinge lid thingy to see that a cap's missing, but +1 for the rest of the answer.
