	If you check into a propane shop the have an electric fuel cut off
switch which is a $17.00 Cdn charge plus the fittings.  If I remeber
correctly it is called a model 121.

	As the story goes on the last jamboree that a Land Cruiser was aloud
in:  The J**p guys where being all hoity toity!  Then as they climbed a
hill it began to rain and get sloppy, one by one the HEEPS got stuck. 
The Land Cruisers after being told that if a J**P could do it a Land
Cruiser surely couldn't clear the hill, climbed the hill and left the
jepps on the hill.  Again acouple of years later the J**PS did the same
thing and this time with no Land Cruisers to help them.  Need less to
say, the Jeeps spent 3 days on the hill waiting for the weather to dry
enough for them to go home crying.  Land Cruiser are still not aloud to
go and embarrass the J**PSTERS.
