Car Fuel Theft

Following many calls to protect cars from fuel theft, we can offer a solution as described below:


The Conical Spring has been used to great effect within the light commercial sector for many years, this device is the only reasonable solution we can offer the car market.


This email will in best describe the product  / system so that you can make your own judgemental view if the spring will suit your car or requirements. aide automotive do not offer any refund or returns policy if this product does not work for your particular vehicle.


We firstly advise you to review  with your local garage or manufacturer if the Conical spring can be fitted to the fuel neck  / entry to the fuel tank. The Spring is supplied 360 mm in length, this can be cut down to a required length.


As it’s a conical spring the end diameter is 55mm. See attached document for a picture.


The idea is that the spring is sent into the filler neck and lodges when the diameter is larger than the internal diameter of the filler neck, the spring will sit tight tin the neck making very hard to be removed. As it’s a curled spring fuel will be able to flow into the tank while re fuelling.


Once you have decided the correct amount of spring to be used any excess is cut off with a practical saw.


Examples of use –


Ford Transit – The whole spring is pushed into the neck until full compression, a small amount is cut off and the spring is lodged behind the entry.


Iveco Daily – A small amount of the spring was used to be situated at the entry to the fuel tank in the plastic pipe.


Landrover  Defender – Roughly half the spring was used and pushed into the entry, compressing and holding in place.


Once you have discussed this with a car garage or your manufacturer and if you wish to purchase we can take payment via credit  or debit cards.


We hope this helps and please if you do proceed offer feedback on fitting or use.
