Fuel Theft Alarm TankGuard

June 29th, 2011

With many years of experience of fuel theft issues regarding commercial vehicles, aide automotive is pleased to add a new product to prevent and stop fuel theft!


Tank Guard is designed to work in conjunction with your existing security devices such as locking fuel cap or anti-syphon device.


For simplicity of use, the Tank Guard will automatically arm after the ignition has been switched off for sixty seconds. Thereafter the ACTIVE DETERRENT will flash the strobe for seven seconds every minute in order to warn off potential thieves. This proven technique in crime reduction can have the effect of reducing the likely-hood of attack in the vehicle by at least eight fold!


Tank Guard also has sophisticated sensor fitted externally in a discreet location on the outside of the fuel tank. If thieves attempt to remove the locked cap, or jemmy out the sender unit or in any way attack the tank then the Tank Guard alarm will be activated. This will result in a 114 decibel siren or voice alarm giving a deafening warning along with a high intensity flashing strobe to drive the thieves away.


Tank Guard is a relatively easy aftermarket installation with the option of adding a second sensor for dual tank trucks.


Matthew Burke aide automotive’s sales director stated ” With marketing and selling anti syphon devices for 10 years to great effect in preventing fuel theft, truck operators have always requested further security around the tank, with this we believe the adding of a Tank Guard to a truck as well as an anti syphon device will 95 % prevent fuel theft and save hauliers hundreds if not thousands pounds. We have reviewed over many years alarm devices but until now could not find the cost affordable technology to make a product suitable for the market, with the cost of a Tank Guard at less than a third of a tank of fuel we believe this now is a product that truck operators can cost effectively purchase to protect against fuel theft.”


Tank Guard can be installed by a competent internal staff or an outsourced auto electrician.
