Siphoning gas is one of those crimes where the payoff is nowhere close to the risk. The risk is even higher when the gas is being siphoned with a home-made electric gas siphoner. This guy's siphoner set him on fire, at which point he tried to put himself out, and tried to flee in his truck. All he ended up doing was destroying a garage, burning himself very badly, destroying his shirt, destroying his truck, and getting a no expenses paid trip to the hospital. Of course, at the end of his hospital stay he will be going directly into police custody.
