How many thieves carry around a plasma cutter?  Most theives look for an easy score that won't attract attention.  If they have to start sawing and cutting they'll move onto the next vehicle.

Doug...it still goes back to the old; "Most crooks go for the easy steal!  If they have to work at it they usually go on to the next one."  Besides, I have that Ray Gun if they try to get Jack's liquid gold! Grin

Hey Cliff, You can have all the alge you want  Shocked

We left just enough fuel to make it to the next fuel stop. Thought we'd starve the alge that way . . .  Huh

But if the darn thing won't run, we can't move 'em & you don't want to be the one telling Julie why . . . do you?  Roll Eyes  Shocked  Grin



BTW, If I see someone with bolt cutters pokin' around my bus, there is a very good chance the police will hear only one side of the story & I'm gonna be the one talkin'  Cool

Nice job Jack!

Sure there are those that would try to take our fuel, but any kind of lock is a deterrent and will slow them down.

Anything is better than nothing.
