is easy to go into the engine
compartment with premade clip jumpers directly to the + battery post and
apply power to the FI pump solenoid and also apply power to the glo plug
buss if you know what you are doing.

  That's the rub.  IF they know what they're doing.  If they know diesels 
then it'll be tough keeping it from them.  If they just know diesels make 
good mileage or "it's a car" then the simple fixes should work.  Sort of 
like my work van. ANYBODY that has ever tried to drive it gets it jambed 
into 2nd or 3rd almost immediately and then can't get it out.  :-)  Add that 
to no power to the power brakes and a really stiff clutch (that actually 
DOES release for the last few years) I figure they won't go far before 
giving up!  Until I rebuilt the shift and clutch linkage I'd guarantee they 
wouldn't get much further than a couple blocks before abandoning it!  ;-)
  I like the idea of a defeat switch.  If it's not flipped then after a 
minutes it either shuts off the fuel or opens to atmosphere letting air into 
the system and stalling the car.  Then if they DO know diesels, it'll look 
like a legit fuel problem.  :-)
