Fuel Theft – Bus driver admits £9k

September 9th, 2013 Comments off

aide automotive market products to prevent vehicle fuel theft.

A bus driver steels thousands of pounds of Fuel from Bakers Dolphin over a three-year period.

The accused was fired by the Weston-based coach firm after 38 years service once the theft was discovered in April.

Michael Collins, prosecuting, told magistrates at North Somerset Courthouse on Monday that the bus driver had prompted suspicion by turning up to work regularly 30 minutes before he was due to start at 5.30am.

He would fill jerry cans with diesel before driving them back in his bus to his home in Highbridge. Having dropped them off, he would then start working and his criminal activity was not spotted because the early start meant he was never late.

He was caught after the firm installed extra CCTV cameras to his vehicle and checked vehicle logging records.

Upon arrest, he admitted taking an estimated £9,000 worth of diesel.

Mis Fuelling Not Covered By Insurance

June 13th, 2013 Comments off

Nearly a quarter of motor breakdown policies do not cover misfuelling, according to new research by financial research company Defaqto.

The analysis of 288 policies showed that 23 per cent exclude cover if you fill your car up with the wrong fuel.

According to the AA, more than 100,000 motorists put the wrong fuel in their car every year.

Meanwhile, it was found that 14 per cent of motor breakdown policies do not provide cover if you run out of fuel.

Mike Powell, Insight Analyst for General Insurance at Defaqto, said: “Drivers putting the wrong fuel into a vehicle not only face a huge repair bill but may also find that their breakdown policy doesn’t provide cover for their vehicle to be towed to a garage.

“Even those motor breakdown policies that do cover such an eventuality will tend to find that the extent of the coverage is limited to towing the car to a garage or to their destination.”

 

Solo Diesel is a Mis Fuelling prevention Device, this product stops wrong fuelling.

Petrol In Diesel

Following a successful retro fit to in use Ginster delivery vans, Ginsters Pasties have now made the Solo Diesel Mis Fuelling device a standard fit to all new vans.

Mis-fuelling takes place when you put petrol in a diesel vehicle. The number of diesel cars on the road has increased, and therefore so have the problems and associated costs of misfueling. Putting petrol in your diesel car is easily done as the nozzle on a diesel pump has a larger diameter than an Unleaded fuel nozzle, so the Unleaded fits into the filler neck of the Diesel vehicle without any problems.

Putting Petrol in a diesel car has become more popular over the last few years and is easily done. The nozzle of a petrol pump is smaller than a Diesel nozzle, and therefore fits into the fuel tank without resistance. All you need is for something to catch your attention and you have an expensive repair bill on your hands (and sometimes an insurance claim!)

The Solo Diesel was installed on production, the new Ginsters vans were supplied by Solomon Commercials with a Mercedes Sprinter chassis.

Solo Diesel will fit a high percentage of vans and cars on UK roads, cost effective and easy to fit, take the worry out of wrong fuelling a diesel vehicle.
