    yesterday I was cutting one of my accounts. Across the street from where i was cutting, was another lawn company(not realy a company, two guys wit crappy equipment, that have lowballin the yards around me for $25). Well I went into the back yard to weedeat and when i came out they were gone and so were three of my gas cans. They were just fiishing up when i went into the back.
    The neighbor was out side and I asked if he saw anything. He said that one of them was walking around in the street and before he could see wht they were doing, the guy in the street hopped in the truck and they drove off. I walked around the corner and found my empty cans laying in a field at the corner. They filled up thier equpment and cans and threw mine.

    People like that give lawns guys a bad name.

    Jus needed to vent! Ughhh!:cry::cry:

    No dont fill them with water thats to easy to fix! I have something better, take one can and put in the back of your truck and fill it 1/2 to 3/4 full of gass assuming its a 5gal can? and put 4 bottles of gass dry that treats 15 gal per bottle and leave it in the back of the truck. Hee.. Hee... That mixture will make that equipment run so freaking lean that it will melt pistons!!!! Ha ha Bastards! "SUPRISE"

    play it like you're an idiot and ask them if they saw anyone come by and steal your gas. before you go mow take lawn sharks idea about the gas, and there you go.

    Just don't forget what can you used, if they don't take it next time, you could put the bad gas in your equipment.
