put an old gas can with sugar gas mix in the back and hope the thief's take it then you will find out who stole your gas. They will break down and it will probably be someone you know. Are you sure the tank sending unit isn't going bad?

put 4 gallons of water and a gallon of gas in a can in the back of your truck, the fuel will float on the water and make them think it's full of fuel....that'll teach 'em

locking gas caps are o.k. but wont deter someone if they know how to get around then. had one pryed off the neck of my 67 chevy truck and had to buy a whole new tank from the damage. the water gas idea seems good as long as you mark it somehow so you or your brother don't accidentally use it.
