Can't Siphon Gas

Mostly living here in Central Florida, having gone through Hurricane Irma, I had no damage to my house, thank god, but had no power for 47 hours. Ran a generator but was getting low on gas for it. Gas stations were out of gas (and ice) or completely closed due to no power. Ok, I tried to siphon gas from my 2015. No dice. Tried two different size tubes (hoses) but could not get tubes far enough into tank. (Newer cars gas tanks are not close to the filler anymore, like in the old days).

Power came on just a little while ago, thank god. Don't need gas for the Sonatas yet, but hope local stations get some soon (plus power to those who don't have it yet). (My Hyundai servicing dealer in Orlando still does not have power).

I have a locking cap on my truck. Not sure it's even needed considering what you experienced.
That and the fact that I don't think people steal gas these days - probably even fewer know HOW to siphon gas.
Maybe in a situation like yours they would though.

Anyway, glad to hear you made it relatively OK - so many did not.

I ran into the same situation. I bought a siphon hose for an upcoming ice storm and my son told me you could not siphon gas out of the new cars and he was right. The bad thing is, the bad guys don't care and they will just punch a hole in your tank and take your gas and leave you with a big repair bill. I guess it stops the thieves who are not hard core.

I belive that there is a screen down in the filler hose to prevent people from getting gasoline out of the tank. Can't get the hose past the screen.

Every protection tool has a matching tool to overcome it. :-)

yea, i had 2011 sonata hybrid, when sandy flooded it it had a full tank, gas was not available at the time, so i tried to siphon some to put in my friends car, it was not easy at all, i could not get tube deep enough, but i found another solution, i put 2 hoses in the tank, sealed them around the opening with plastic bag, one hose i put air pressure into, i used air from tires, i deflated all 4 completely, compressed air pushed gas into another tube, and out in the can, i got about 10 gal out.
