High gas prices. A Ballard gas station with an honor system. You can probably guess where this is going.
The following cry for help appeared today on Craigslist. Dr. Dan’s Alternative Fuelwerks was closed at the time of this posting, so confirmation of the fuel theft is pending.

This is just plain shitty. Please if you know anything contact Dr. Dan's...
Last night someone stole over $1,000 worth of biodiesel by taking advantage of the prepay honor system at Dr. Dan’s. We need your help identifying the vehicle that was seen leaving the scene.
Someone was seen quickly leaving the station on 9th and 50th between 8:00-8:20 PM on Sunday night (10/21/07) in a very well maintained Ford F250 flatbed truck. The truck is two-tone blue/white and has a red 300 gallon oval fuel tank mounted behind the cab. The vehicle did not have plates, and was spilling fuel at it fled because the driver did not put the gas cap on in their haste.
If you have seen this vehicle or have any information regarding this incident, please contact us immediately. Thank you for your help!
