Fuel Thefts in Hounslow

July 10th, 2013 Comments off

Hounslow has been reported as the worst London borough for Fuel Theft from vehicles.

This information is based on figures obtained from the Metropolitan Police.

The West London borough had a total of 175 reports between 2009 and 2012, but only five prosecutions.

Greenwich, Lewisham, Southwark and Merton also emerge in the top five boroughs for Fuel Theft.

The Met said the majority of thefts were from commercial haulage vehicles which were prominent in Hounslow.

It said the area served both Heathrow Airport and Central London and advised that parking goods vehicles in areas with good lighting and CCTV was the most effective way of reducing opportunities for thieves to syphon diesel.

Bayliss Travel recently purchased a range of PSV Anti Fuel Theft Prevention devices from aide automotive ltd.

Bus & coach operators are reporting an increase in fuel stolen while vehicles are parked in yards and depots overnight; with tanks full for the next days work the thieves can syphon tens of litres quickly and quietly.

With the spiralling cost of fuel, police have issued a warning to business owners to ensure fuel is kept as secure as possible.

Relatively easy to fit,  PSV Anti Syphon Devices are a payback investment against stolen diesel fuel.

For coaches with minimal clearance between the body and filler neck, we can offer a Lo Profile version.

Matthew Burke Point out “The fuel prices rise and so does the theft of fuel. Fitting any fuel theft prevention product is a way of helping to reduce this problem. Our Anti Siphon products are easy to fit and on PSV’s  reduce the possibility of theft to more or less zero.”
