    It seems to me that you guys don`t know what the definition of the word "joke" is.

    1. Something said or done to evoke laughter or amusement, especially an amusing story with a punch line.
    2. A mischievous trick; a prank.
    3. An amusing or ludicrous incident or situation.
    4. Informal.
    1. Something not to be taken seriously; a triviality: The accident was no joke.
    2. An object of amusement or laughter; a laughingstock: His loud tie was the joke of the office.

    "oh we`re all bad b/c we`re stealing gas, screw the corporation who says not to put flammable liquids in this."

    pretty sure the only bad ass way to do this is steal the equipment, then steal the gas, and not do a video about it.

    People wouldn`t have to start stealing gas if we could only figure out that we don`t have endless oil, we are consuming over a billion barrels a day, and all we are doing with those billions of gallons are BURNING THEM. We`re spending 3.69 a gallon....just to burn it all? What are we DOING?! And now majorlly populated countries such as China and India are converting to automotives mainly to move around which has now doubled our use of oil, giving us even less time to use it. Oil will run out, if not in this generation, it will be our children who will face the extinction of oil.

    On the other side, it could be a, "Who can`t pull their own weight" kind of thing. If you can`t afford it, do without it. Life sucks, get over it.

    "why not just spend the money they used to buy the equipment to do it to buy gas?" They spent a total of about 15 dollars on the equipment. And 15 dollars get you about 5 gallons or so, less probablly. And if you used this method long enough, for 15 dollars, you could have 15 gallons.

    Point is, it`s even expensive for them. Mayb be cheap for us, but in their economic system it sucks for them.

    Sadly I don`t know enough economics to explain it properly.

    And we get ripped off big time in this country, I agree, but Im not going to say woah is me and call the Americans are pathetic.

    I completely agree, what`s the point in burning all of the oil? Why don`t we just collect it and then sit and watch it? It would be a far more economic way to use it, and it is quite interesting to stare at

    Energy Answer: Build Nuclear Power plants.

    Cheap energy yields cheap everything. Expensive energy (oil at the moment) makes everything more expensive.

    Let the Saudis, Venezuelans and Canadians DRINK their oil; we`ll be selling cheap electricity to the world.

    Good job. "

    First of all, he was trying to explain that at the rate we`re consuming gas/oil on this planet, we`ll be forced to switch to alternate energy. This fact is TRUE no matter how much you hate captain planet and tree huggers.

    Secondly, he was explaining to someone that it would be more cost effective (and illegal) to buy the equipment and siphon the gas rather than just buy the gas.

    1. Gas doesn`t ignite in a drill pump, because the fluid isn`t flammable, the VAPOR is. inside the pump there is liquid gasoline, not vapor or oxygen (or any source of spark/heat)
    2. This will move a lot more volume than actually syphoning
    3. Yea, it works. The only problem would be the cars that do not allow a small hose all the way into the tank (hence the block comments they made).
    4. Everyone should know that they did do this, to actual people, but maybe not in the video. This was probably their car. It could be a joke in this situation but the issue is real.
    5. You idiots are arguing about whether it will explode. The warning the pump displayed about no flammable liquids was there to avoid liability if the pump did explode.

    YES THIS WILL WORK, NO THEY WON`t EXPLODE; it`s just a good proof of concept. Points: these guys 1; commenters 0.

    beternal:
    i agree, I wasn`t arguing that much with you. But supply demand plus some other things. So either means your government charges more taxes or you use more than we do.


    But yes we`re complaining because in comparison to our past prices it`s shot up like no other. I`m not sure if it`s gone up by as a high a % there but if it is, I`m sure you have people complaining as well. It`s all about perspective.


    Concept: Forced? We should have done it years ago. I was advocating hydrogen 7 years ago after doing some research on it.

    He was regurgitating something he heard/read. Word for word. There`s no original thought, it`s like an advertisement.

    Know what you`re talking about and wait till you grow up to comment.

    RyanF701: I wish I knew you in real life so that way I could actually comment on your intelligence, instead of just deriving it from your post, in which I would think of you as an idiot.

    Liquidglass: Pardon me, then. From your previous comment I thought that you were opposed to alternate energy ("captain planet/tree hugger BS").

    philiselite, are you telling me no fumes escape during this little procedure?

    Furthermore, you willing to be that pump doesn`t suck some AIR during this process?

    Just keep filming so we can watch the Darwin award winner, brainiac.

    yeah, there are easier ways around this...
    "buy a locking gas cap"

    yeah, well, a cheap crow bar will fix that problem.

    I have two tanks, and I filled up with 82 dollars the other day, then two days later, I find the second tank half empty.... pissed me off... So now, I only put about 15 bucks worth of gas in at a time.

    yeah when we invent nuclear powered trucks everything would be cheaper. powerplants don`t deliver the "goods". trucks do. trucks run on gas. dumbass. thats why everything else is expensive. the world depends on gas and oil. again, you`re a dumbass.

    although, running nuclear power plants instead of fossil fuel power plants would alleviate the costs, most of it comes down to how we get our supplies and transportation.
