Sugar in Gas Tank?


There are a few issues to consider when you discover that sugar is in your gas tank. First of all, there is the car itself. Sugar will likely block the fuel filter and stop the car from starting. The best thing to do is call a tow truck and have a mechanic clean the gas tank out for you. The cost runs between $100 and $200.

Now that you know your car will be fine, it's time to consider the culprit. Do you know the person who put sugar in your gas tank? If so, you might consider calling the police before they do something more dangerous such as cutting your breaks. Even if you don't know who did this to your car, it might be a good idea to talk with other neighbors to see if there have been any suspicious characters lurking around your car.
