I would think it would take more than a packet. You should send an email to that discovery channel show, Mythbusters with those two idiots. Ask them how much sugar it takes to ruin a motor. I bet they would do it.
I wonder if it happens a lot and people just dont notice. I know its fairly common amongst the stunnas in my school to hit eachothers civic. But I park at my buddies house across the street so they can duke it out.
Dunno about sugar, but wouldnt sand settle in the gas tank, or be caught through the fuel filter. If it was dumped in the oil, it would hopefully be caught in the oil filter, but not after raping your main bearings.

sugar just clogs the injectors, the amount depends on the amount of gas in the tank. the best thing is to just put some kink of liquid that will go through the injectors. i would recomend paint thinner, or something like that
Most quality fuel filters won't pass sand, which is mostly large particles. Depending on element design/quality, particulate smaller than a 680 grit will pass a fuel filter, and do friction damage to your engine. Lapidary grit from a gem or rock house is your best sabotage bet.
Sugar is not very soluable in gasoline, but I've spoken with people who got a dose of it in their fuel system when they ran their tank low. I forget if/what damage was done to the engine, but the sugar was all clogged in the injectors, a big sticky mess.
There is no mechanical problem so difficult that it can not be overcome by brute strength and ignorance.
