I was going to mention the temperature of the gas ... always fill up when it is colder to get more gas! Didn't realize some companies were heating
Find some way for you to verify vehicle placement exactly ... not only that ... but things inside the car as well. The more you make traceable, the
more you can notice the possible offender may not. They may have a key or get into your house ... are your keys accessable for a joyride theif? I
assume you have a CD player ... if it is possible ... get used to how it works and where it picks back up on the same song if you shut the car off

get a seat cover ... and place something that would absorb an imprint or leave a permanent mark on it under the cover ...
I know some of those are out there a bit, but some of them can definitely work. It does leave a bad taste in your mouth to think of someone else
driving your new car ... the oil companies getting one on us ... any of it.
Hope you get it worked out ... I can't wait to hear the truth of the matter.
If it is a hoax, kudos, but not nice for those with no sense of humor
