To this day, I don't understand why people mess with other peoples car. Just says 1 thing about them, immaturity. If it's for revenge, lame excuse.
I apologize to hear this happen to you on a very nice ride!
The only way to fix this problem is too remove the gas tank, drain the fuel, clean out the gas tank by dumping some fresh gas into it, shake the tank around and remove the fuel. This will help remove any sugar remaining in the tank.
Did you try and start the car? If you didn't, that's good! DO NOT START THE CAR! Sugar can and will lock up your engine forcing to have you put a new engine in the car. Is the car under warranty? If so, explain to the dealer what happened, maybe they can help you out.
I've never personally been in this situation so I can only say so much.
Just whatever you do, DO NOT TRY AND START THE CAR! If you have already tried to start it and the engine is locked. If the car is under warranty, get it to the shop and have them put in a new engine and redo the fuel system with new fuel pump, lines, filter and proper fittings.
Again, I am really sorry this happened to you. Nice ride and I hope you get it fixed soon -op-
