    This have been told to me a few minutes ago by a neighbor of mine, I can neither confirm or deny it's truthfulness.

    A man who lives a couple of blocks from my own place has the gas in his car stolen countless times in a few months time, so he started to think about ways to prevent the theft, after some research and experiment he came up with this ingenious system to wire the car battery internally trough the car into the removable gas cover, a few days later after the completion of his invention, he decided to go into the pump and fill the car, the thing was, he went to one of those pumps where it's the employee that fills in the car, and since he just installed the thing in his car, he forgot to turn it down, when the pump employee went to open the cover he was electrocuted, since this person seem to had a cardiac bypass, he had a cardiac arrest and died in the scene.

    The owner of the car was arrested by the charges of murder for negligence, and that's when this neighbor of mine heard about all this story.

    I honestly cannot have a sincere conclusion about this story, but it really makes one think about things.

    It's one of those things that just sounds like it was meant to happen.

    The car battery has 12V, to kill anything except a snake or fish through 12V you'd have to pike into the heart or put it through spikes long enough into his body to make sure his blood is gone byebye.

    Except that, any spark in that location is a great chance for a large scaled explosion ;)

    So it is completely made up.

    P.S.
    Get a good car, it has an automated locking mechanism for the gas cover. Even most cheap cars have a key hole there I think ;)

    That's what I thought initially, but I have no reason do doubt this neighbor of mine, he was actually passing by when he saw an ambulance in the pump and went check it out of his curiosity.

    Well, in theory with some voltage transformer connected along the way he could easily transform 12v in 120v or more, I don't know.

    It's not the volts that kill you it's the watts. That's how a 450.000 volt
    stun gun can run off a 9volt battery. And stun guns have been known to
    kill people. A good current through a good capacitor will do the trick.

    Amps kill, but it takes the volts to push the amps to a lethal level.
    Which is about 50mA for a V-Fib (ventricular fibrillation).

    If you had rigged this up...and a guy basically got killed from your "invention", are you gonna say..."damn, I'm sorry, I guess I should have disabled the electrical shocker device that I rigged up"...NO, you're not gonna say crap. Neither is anyone else! Your gonna get your car out of the way while the paramedics work on this poor guy that had a heart attack, your gonna go home, and remove all traces of this poorly thought out device.

    BS story.

    Gee, Don't you think a locking gas cap would have been easier??

    I have a electronics background and can tell you, this is not very likely and would have been
    a real bitch to wire. Plus, there is the real danger of blowing up your car. Electricity and gasoline makes for a nice bomb.

    This sounds like a urban legend.
