tanker yanker
 n.— «Humphreys, who brought a reporter along for the ride, works his way up the 10 gears, just as the gray-bearded, gun-loving, trout-fishing Castro Valley resident has been doing the past 30 years. Beside him in the cab is an article about James Mosqueda, now the Bay Area’s most notorious “tanker yanker,” as this brotherhood of fuel haulers sometimes call themselves.» —“Tanker truckers: Ice water in veins, fuel on backside” by Patrick May Mercury News (San Jose, California) May 3, 2007.
