    If the $1500 runner is petrol, drill, tap and fit a sparkplug into the top of the fuel tank and run a lead back to whatever sparks it up...but for fucks sake remember to disconnect it before heading home.

    It is not unknown for Spray Marker Dye to be used in a device using a 12v motion sensor, but no good inside a car.

    strip car before leaving home..leave glovebox and centre console open so baddies can see nothing in there worth pinching.

    If you were serious about this and had a car trailer you could tow your $1500 shitbox to the local town garage where you have it prearranged that your towing vehicle and your trailer are safely locked up

    Drive your shitbox to the trailhead, have a killswitch or take the rotor out, take your chances from there

    Agree with MD re leaving glovebox and centre console open

    Also a note on the dash saying " Before I get back from hunting I watch my car for half an hour - am I watching you now?"

    Always fold gun bags in half, living on a road end i have seen a few break-ins just to check if bag is empty or not and once broken into take the empty bag as payment for the effort...tinted windows mean rrrss 'ols have to smash a window to have a nosy inside.

    Don't have a full tank, have just enough (and a spare bit) fuel in the tank to get you home or to nearest service station. Might pay to stash a few litres in the bush. Have had fuel stolen.

    Some places I drop my gear off drive and park at a safe place down the road and push-bike back to my gear at the road end.
