Fuming Over Stolen Truck Diesel?

Hauliers have been advised to be on their guard after a load worth £18,000 was stolen from a truck in Northamptonshire last week.

Thieves broke into the lorry, which was parked in an A14 lay-by overnight on Wednesday 19 February, and took around 1,000 bottles of Bombay Sapphire gin.

The thieves are believed to have used a van in the raid, which occurred between 8pm on Wednesday and 5am on Thursday 20 February.


North Yorkshire Police are urging hauliers to keep their vehicles properly secured overnight after a truck was stolen in Leyburn earlier this week.

The Scania truck with a curtainsided trailer was taken from Moor Road, sometime overnight between Monday 12 August and Tuesday 13 August.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police was unable to confirm which company operated the truck and hauliers in the area seemed unaware that the theft had taken place.

Police have advised that vehicles are kept in locked compounds when not in use and are fitted with GPS or tracking devices, enabling operators to locate vehicles if they are stolen.

Truck Diesel Fuel Spills Reaches 500 Prohibitions

More than 500 immediate prohibitions have been issued to commercial vehicles for Spilling Diesel Fuel on the roads since the DVSA began to crack down on the problem last year.

Since September the DVSA has been issuing only immediate prohibitions for fuel system defects or diesel spillages. Offences likely to warrant an immediate prohibition include a missing or ineffective fuel cap or seal, a fuel leak caused by a defect or an insecure fuel tank.

A pilot scheme giving Highways Agency officers the power to stop vehicles and direct them to a DVSA site for inspection was a success,

A DVSA spokesman said. “The agency is currently looking for ways in which it could be rolled-out further.”

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

Petrol In Diesel

Following a successful retro fit to in use Ginster delivery vans, Ginsters Pasties have now made the Solo Diesel Mis Fuelling device a standard fit to all new vans.

Mis-fuelling takes place when you put petrol in a diesel vehicle. The number of diesel cars on the road has increased, and therefore so have the problems and associated costs of misfueling. Putting petrol in your diesel car is easily done as the nozzle on a diesel pump has a larger diameter than an Unleaded fuel nozzle, so the Unleaded fits into the filler neck of the Diesel vehicle without any problems.

Putting Petrol in a diesel car has become more popular over the last few years and is easily done. The nozzle of a petrol pump is smaller than a Diesel nozzle, and therefore fits into the fuel tank without resistance. All you need is for something to catch your attention and you have an expensive repair bill on your hands (and sometimes an insurance claim!)

The Solo Diesel was installed on production, the new Ginsters vans were supplied by Solomon Commercials with a Mercedes Sprinter chassis.

Solo Diesel will fit a high percentage of vans and cars on UK roads, cost effective and easy to fit, take the worry out of wrong fuelling a diesel vehicle.

AdBlue Contaminated With Diesel

December 6th, 2012 Comments off

aide automotive recently supplied Bedford Fire Service with the AdBlue Anti Contamination Cap. Following an incident of contamination, Bedford Fire decided to reduce the risk of further issues and fitted the AdBlue Cap to Volvo vehicles.

It only takes a small amount of contamination which affects the SCR systems dosing unit and catalytic converter which can put your truck in limp mode requiring a full reset.

The AdBlue Cap has been designed so that if you do try to put Diesel into the Cap and any Diesel is released, it will run off through the drain off holes and no diesel can enter the AdBlue tank. This cap will also stop any debris from entering the AdBlue Tank.

Diesel contamination of an AdBlue truck tank can have major effects to a trucks SCR system which in some cases validates warranty and incurs lengthy downtime. To read more about the AdBlue Cap, click on AdBlue Anti Contamination Cap to go the products website.

You can also call 0115 8456471 to ask questions to our sales team.

Skimming prevention Anti Syphon Device

October 26th, 2011 Comments off

Hercules is a Skimming prevention anti syphon device from aide automotive ltd.

The Hercules Fuel Security and Safety Device is the only device to prevent ANY fuel loss due to its unique float-valve that allows fuel to flow into the tank, but locks off once filling is stopped, meaning no fuel can be siphoned.

Also the Hercules can reduce fuel spillage, stopping spiilages is good for the environment and safety on the road.

With fuel theft on the increase this product prevents thieves from siphoning and skimming fuel from the tank. Another benefit is that it prevents fuel spillages. All in all it saves an organisation money in terms of the cost of potential stolen fuel, replacement fuel and fuel spillages.
