Dude, are you experiencing some level of paranoia? I know gas is getting expensive - but is there really a run on ppl siphening gas out of vehicles?

Most cars have the screen, I do not know how many.

If you're that worried, why not get a locking gas cap? They're cheap and added protection.

I know that there has already been a few cases of people siphoning gas here and gas is still under $3.50 per gallon.

Hardly like say, a station mentioned by NBC in DC tonight thats already up over $5.80 per gallon (which is, no doubt, price goudging... and highly illegal, prices are raising and justifibly so.. but not yet THAT much!).

Anyone know what year they started installing screens?

I'd just buy a locking gas cap if your worried. Thats what I did. Gas siphening is becoming a big problem here in Winnipeg, Canada where price is $1.20/litre ($4.50/Gallon) two/three weeks ago it was $0.92/litre ($3.48/Gallon) and there are alot of people that can't afford gas now and have resorted to siphening from others.

I haven't heard of this screen before... because there can be legit reasons for siphening gas from your own vehicle. but just to be on the safe side I'd recommend buying a locking gas cap. They don't cost alot.

I could be wrong, but I don't buy this screen story. There's an easy way to figure it out for yourself. Just pull the filler tube out and look for yourself. There are four bolts holding it at the top of the filler neck. Where the tube goes into the tank, it's not secured with anything, just slid in through a rubber gasket. Just wiggle it out. I had mine out when I replaced the fuel pump, and there was no screen on my tube.

I'd be interested to know if I'm right or wrong on this.

on the new 2005 doge caravan, there is a spring and check valve in the filler tube preventing gas siphoning. This information comes directly from dodge.

I would hope that you could get the gas out that way. If a thief can't, they use a hammer and a screwdriver on the bottom of the tank. I'd rather replace the gas, then the tank (again).
