From the picture of the car that was shared by the owner and the condition that the vehicle is in, safe to assume that the process of fuel siphoning was employed by the thief.
Here is how one can siphon fuel from a vehicle.
However, this process should only be used in case of an emergency and not for stealing fuel.
According to an article by Art of Manliness, syphoning starts the flow of water from a higher point to a lower point by producing a vacuum. One would need a hose and a container to perform the process.
First one must remove the vehicle’s fuel cap and insert a portion of the hose into the fuel tank. Then prepare the container where the other end of the hose goes.
Once the equipment is prepared, the next step is to suck on the hose like a straw to draw the fuel from the tank. Once you feel the fuel in your mouth immediately transfer the hose to the container.
Then quickly spit the fuel from your mouth and rinse it with clean water. Never swallow the fuel, not even by mistake!
Then make sure that the container is kept below the fuel tank’s level to keep syphoning. Once you have taken enough fuel, then just remove the hose from the fuel tank.
Below is a tutorial video to show how it’s done.
As mentioned above, this process should only be used in an emergency situation.
