aide auto Offer Spill Valves for The TP Anti Syph

From 1 September 2014, the DVSA has vowed to take a ‘more robust approach’ to commercial vehicles with defective fuel systems.

Following a Highways Agency (HA) report on the effect of diesel fuel spills on the road network, the Department for Transport (DfT) has asked DVSA to review the sanctions issued at the roadside for vehicles with defective fuel tanks and systems.

The DVSA has reviewed sanctions for defective fuel systems and agreed some changes with DfT. In a statement on its Matters of Testing blog, the Agency said, “The main difference is that we’ll now only issue immediate prohibitions for defective fuel systems and leaks. We have communicated these to the trade associations and updated the changes into the Categorisation of Defects and Enforcement Sanctions Policy”.

aide automotive have been marketing a Retro Fit Spill Valve for the TP Anti Syph for the past 4 years.

With the above DVSA stance the Anti Siphon spill valve would be an excellent belt and braces approach to faulty or lost fuel caps.

TP Spill Valve is a retro fit valve for the TP Anti Siphon product range to stop diesel spillages. Easy to fit and ideal as an environmental proactive measurement, this simple step will make roads safer for all users.
