Airtabs Are A Proven Fuel Reduction Product For Commercial Vehicles

aide automotive ltd are pleased to introduced a new product the range called “Airtabs”!

Airtabs are a revolutionary product to the commercial vehicle market and can on average offer a 2.5% saving on fuel!

Airtabs are patented, unique wishbone shaped vortex generators designed to increase vehicle aerodynamic performance and fuel economy by reducing aerodynamic pressure drag at two key locations; the tractor-trailer gap and the rear facing surface (the base area) of any commercial or private square backed vehicle or trailer that routinely attains highway speeds. Drag reduction and fuel economy benefits from Airtab application is not limited to commercial trucking operations. Airtabs enhance aerodynamic performance equally well on cube vans, straight trucks, expeditors, buses, flat beds and tankers.

The results may vary somewhat with vehicle type but the aerodynamic theory and principles are the same for all.

Airtabs are mounted 3 per linear foot, or every 4 inches on centre. Take the number of feet to be covered and multiply by 3 to give the number of Airtabs required. Airtabs are approximately (in inches) 3.5 wide, 5 long and 1 high.

Each Airtab creates two tight swirls of air or vortices that combine to reduce the suction and drag at the rear of vehicles travelling at speeds above approximately 35 mph or 55kmh. Airtabs are also effective at the rear roof lines of automobiles that have a rear window slope of greater than 30 degrees.

Matthew Burke Sales Director Stated “With today’s rising costs of fuel all companies need to review ways on reducing costs and AirTabs are the proven ideal tool. With an easy period pay back this product is for now and the future.”

UK testing has also taken place at Mira and a couple of prominent fleets in the UK have shown the results to be true.

Fuel Theft Alarm TankGuard

June 29th, 2011 Comments off

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.
