Protect Against HGV Fuel Thieves or not?

Do We Protect Against HGV Fuel Thieves or not?


aide automotive have been marketing and selling HGV / Commercial Vehicle fuel protection products for 20 years, we see increasing negativity on using anti siphon devices to protect the diesel fuel tank on a truck.


A recent remark was “anti-siphoning devices are a waste of time, you fit them and the bandits drill your diesel tank”


We agree anti siphon devices are not the be and end all to protect a commodity like HGV fuel, but what is?


To protect against any theft the owner has to create security / obstacles to prevent the thief from achieving their aim, instead of negativity to available protection aids and just ignoring the problem, look at the best way to help secure your property! Ignorance will inevitably breed thieves to repeat the act and look for easy targets!


In our 20 years marketing HGV diesel protection we have never had a call saying, “they drilled my tank!” We do have, “they just ripped out the sender unit” or “they just smashed the ASD”. So, the question is, how much is this commodity important to you? To lose a full tank for many is important to protect, also the follow-on inconvenience. So, if you think they will attack the tank, install an alarm, if they siphon fuel while a driver is parked, an Anti-Siphon Device? But overall a starting point is the “padlock” of an Anti-Siphon Device on the filler neck for many….

 
If not, then further protection aides like theTruck Tank Alarm “TankGuard” or Sender Unit Covers to protect the costly rip out of this item.


With this we have a SPECIAL Sample offer of the FuelKeep Anti Siphon Device!

Take a Sample at delivery cost only to prove the durability & quality of this Superb low cost ASD!

Trio admit stealing diesel from lorry after police spotted van in Swaffham lay-by

Three teenagers siphoned 165 litres of diesel from a lorry while the driver slept in the cab.

But police officers who had a hunch about their Transit van parked in a lay-by on the A47 at Swaffham caught them as they made off.

At Lynn Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 18-year-old Bradley Hopkins, of Castle Acre Road, Swaffham, and two 17-year-olds, who cannot be named for legal reasons, each admitted theft of diesel worth £163.71 and going equipped for theft.

One of the trio was fined £150 for the theft and £50 for going equipped. He was also ordered to pay £55 compensation (a third of the diesel cost) to the lorry owner, £85 costs and a £32 victim surcharge!

HGV Fuel Theft, A Problem Over The Festive Period

HGV Fuel Theft, A Problem Over The Festive Period


Fuel theft from commercial vehicles is a common problem over the festive period, because vehicles are left idle while firms close down for the Christmas Break. This makes them a lucrative target for thieves looking to syphon fuel from the vehicles.

Here at aide automotive we’ve found that for this reason sales of our fuel theft devices have increased in the run up to Christmas, quoted Matt Burke Sales Director,

“We always see an increase in sales of our fuel theft devices in the weeks before Christmas. Most companies want to protect their vehicles from thieves looking to syphon off fuel whilst a business is closed down and nobody is on the premises. We have a range of anti-siphon devices that have the perfect solution for this problem. Investing in one of these devices allows business owners the chance to relax and enjoy the Christmas break, safe in the knowledge that their vehicles are protected from fuel theft.”

An Truck Fuel Theft Prevention device is extremely cost effective, for a small investment it could save a company thousands in terms of stolen fuel and vehicle downtime.

Anti Fuel Theft Devices are relatively cheap to purchase and capable of withstanding regular and prolonged use.

Stop Fuel Theft.

•Give the Truck Owner Piece Of Mind
