Give it Gas (not sand)

When my step-daughter Em owned the Rain Forest Monster, one time she drove it to a local beach.  Upon returning to the car she immediately noticed that something was amiss. Sure enough, someone had opened the door to the gas cap and poured sand in the gas tank. Em had the presence of mind not to start the car but rather had it towed to her garage, where the necessary repairs were made. I think these may have included a new gas tank.

So I hunted for a locking cap for the 2000, eventually finding one on  A bit pricey, but worth the peace of mind.
