The offender has targeted two vehicles in the past 24 hours and is believed to be collecting the fuel in a domestic red jerry can.
Detective Inspector Mike Squires, leading the investigation, described the crimes as a "massive problem", particularly as puddles of fuel are being left underneath cars. He said: "We're concerned about the danger aspects of it - it isn't just a theft."
Anyone with information should contact Det Insp Squires on 101 or, to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
