    I don't know about a check valve. Never heard of that nor seen one, but there is definitely a baffle at the end of the filler neck akin to a pipe with a closed off end and a bunch of holes drilled in it. Fuel can still be siphoned from the tank, but only down to about 1/2 or 1/4 tank. I've done this one a BMW recently for shipping. Couldn't get it below 3/8 of a tank and had to drive the rest off.

    Fan-tas-tick job MPD!!!!😁 now share information on who is those worthless punks..... Names, pictures, where they from, and what kind of loving family they came from.....😁😜😂😛🤣🤑😅🤤😃😲

    I doubt your assumption involving the amount of money to be made in anything MPD does. It's more the money that would be wasted to try do stings. Most crimes are done randomly in many different areas and time even days or longer. The problems is in kihei right now..... ok mpd stake out the kihei area. Then the same crime moved to Wailea area. Than mpd put another sting out there then it happens in lahaina then paia then kahului then somewhere else..... so, how many officers do you think would be just a waste of our tax money ? I say all.... And as for being distracted by cellular phones by talking or texting while driving... It's happening every second on the road... And that my friend is deadly....... and also it's a waste of my time... I am on the road all day and how many times I find myself behind just 1 car at the street lights and our light turns green and the car in front of me just sit there and the light turns yellow or red then the driver finally realized then runs the red or speed through the yellow light and me and the rest of the cars behind me have to wait again for the next green light.... just because that fricking IDIOT was on their cellular phone. Now, did this ever happened to you? Or are you one of that fricking IDIOT???!!! Yes, the police has plenty of different violations to catch and one is definitely people like you that is in denial about the problems of driving with cellular phones in hands..... And I can show data and stories and pictures after the facts on this....
    USE A HANDS FREE OR BLUETOOTH!!!!!!!!!!!! 😠

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Maui_Mike on 4/26/2017 3:27pm

    Some earlier models actually had a spring in the filler neck specifically to prevent a hose from being placed in it, that was an old early eighties car though, what you say sounds totally logical, and still prevents a hose from being placed in to siphon gas........right?
    I've removed a couple tanks and had no problem pouring the gas out the filler neck, but I'll take your word for it, perhaps not all cars are equipped the same...

  • Re: CONDEMNED: Lead Paint Forces Closure of Old Kula Community CenterPosted by Martin on 4/26/2017 2:34pm

    The studio painted over the walls a few years ago, so they are good for the most part. There are a few rooms that were occupied by the Maui Farm Bureau that were not painted that they might be talking about.

    The building has been there for perhaps a hundred years or so, and is unlikely to collapse this year, but I know that the dance school would like to put the money into the building to make sure kids are happy dancing there for another 100 years. Without a lease though why put a lot of money into the building when they might be kicked out with a few days notice?

    The building was a Japanese school a hundred years ago. It MIGHT even be the oldest still in existence outside of Japan

    It is a terrible, terrible shame, because so many families got so much from that studio and still do.

    Their programs have been a lifesaver for my family over the years and kept us all out of trouble.

    So many kids and families up there dancing so often when the new community center below and tennis courts are empty.

    Sigh.

    Nukepillsdotcom they have lots of info and sell potassium iodide pills and rad cards that indicate exposure levels,,, just good to have, plus keep a large stash of bottled water and foods that dont need much prep, better safe than sorry,,,
    Read up on this stuff, google is your friend
    Google the book by Cresson Kearney, nuclear war survival skills, its available as a download or free here n there or you can pay for it too, also field manuals and other literature available for free on line

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Nailbanger on 4/26/2017 1:19pm

    Close, its not actually a screen but a check valve of sorts that stops the gas from coming out of the filler neck in a rollover

  • Re: CONDEMNED: Lead Paint Forces Closure of Old Kula Community CenterPosted by John Sundance on 4/26/2017 12:48pm

    There is no consistency. The County made Wailuku Historical. I worked on almost every building in Wailuku and the shelves ALL had lead paint, read lead on the walls. The Iao Theater had dozens of boxes arsenic green under the stares among other things like asbestos. From the pictures the building is in better shape than Wailuku was 40 years ago so something crooked is going on as usual? Yah who is eating the walls?

  • Re: Suspects Sought in Armed Robbery of Tokyo Lounge, WailukuPosted by Maui_Mike on 4/26/2017 11:53am

    Great job by MPD, let's look at the bright side of this, we are getting rid of some bad people as these slugs surface, unfortunately there are probably replacements.......remember kids, crime don't pay, stay in school!

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Bobby Giordano on 4/26/2017 8:53am

    The point is ALL crimes should be addressed, not just ones that are minimally confrontational and revenue-producing. Though I have no data to support it, there seems to be an intuitive perception on the part of MANY that very little is devoted to sting operations regarding crimes mentioned above, and perhaps precisely because there is little money in it and there are much greater risks of physical confrontation. Frankly, I, as well as many others, I suspect, would rather see a person breaking into vehicles apprehended than a ticket being issued to someone going 20 MPH and talking on a cell phone.

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Maui_Mike on 4/26/2017 8:51am

    I could not agree more, especially the dummies who are texting while driving.....

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Maui_Mike on 4/26/2017 8:49am

    Cars have had a screen built into the filler neck to prevent a hose from being placed in it for a very long time, over twenty years for sure....probably longer.
    I used to siphon out of my old truck to mow the lawn occasionally, never drank a drop!

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Stand Alone 🐼 on 4/26/2017 8:11am

    Being on the road driving and being distracted by your phone for 5 seconds at a rate of speed at 55 mph you will travel a distance of 300 feet equel to 3 football field...... now on South kihei road being distracted by your cellular phone you will travel to far for a road with a lot of intersections and a road full with pedestrians crossover that road. So, yes anyone on their cellular phone while driving deserve to be cited. So, yes the police is doing their jobs......

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Nailbanger on 4/26/2017 7:58am

    Catch them, soak em in gasoline and light em on fire,,,

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Bobby Giordano on 4/26/2017 7:05am

    A good point made on facebook comments that I have wondered about for a long time is the (what at least seems to be the case) absence of sting operations on the part of police regarding vehicle break-ins, etc. No doubt true that our quality of life would be generally much more improved if these kinds of crimes were more aggressively addressed by police than, for example, driving while on one's cell phone on South Kihei road and being ticketed by a motorcycle cop. It would be tragically comical if a ticket was being issued for such there exactly when some loser was draining someone's tank a few hundred yards away.

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Bobby Giordano on 4/26/2017 6:53am

    Just a hunch, but I would surmise it's quite a desperate person that would do that. Now.....hmmmmmm,....any ideas? Forced emigration now!

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by britty on 4/26/2017 6:34am

    Wow. Why siphon when you can blow yourself up? They must really hate the taste of gasoline. lol

  • Re: A Look at Maui County Homes Under $800KPosted by britty on 4/26/2017 6:28am

    There is NO WAY anyone other than the 1% can afford that. My fiance and i just bought a house in Illinois for $127,000. four bedroom, two bathroom. So much for the dream of one day retiring in Maui :(

  • Re: EXCLUSIVE: Rash of Gas Thefts Involving Drilled Tanks in South MauiPosted by Stand Alone 🐼 on 4/26/2017 5:42am

    Lifted trucks save lives.... we have better visibility from up high.... And much better DRIVERS then most. For instance there are far more small tiny cars accidents that lifted trucks.....so who's the complete idiot? 😲duh.....

  • Re: Maui Police Investigate Armed Robbery at Kahului BusinessPosted by Stand Alone 🐼 on 4/26/2017 2:57am

    And just 2 big COWARDS..... hope karma gets them right between the eyes.....

  • Re: Maui Police Investigate Armed Robbery at Kahului BusinessPosted by Maui_Mike on 4/26/2017 2:28am

    Karma will catch up to them, there is always a price to pay for bad actions......and these guys probably slipped up somewhere, I'm sure they are not too smart.

  • Re: Maui Police Investigate Armed Robbery at Kahului BusinessPosted by Stand Alone 🐼 on 4/26/2017 2:24am
