Protect From Truck Fuel Theft

As Thieves Steal Fuel From Lorries Parked in Rotherham

Lorry drivers in South Yorkshire are being urged to be on their guard against thieves stealing fuel.

Diesel worth more than £1,000 was stolen from lorries parked at an industrial estate on Meadow Way, Swinton, Rotherham, while drivers slept overnight on Sunday into Monday.

Another lorry, parked at Kilnhurst Road, Rawmarsh, was also targeted between 6pm on Sunday and 3.25am on Monday.

Police said the driver of that lorry heard a noise at the back of his vehicle and climbed out of the cab to find a siphoning hose near the tank.

Protecting Truck Fuel Tanks can be as simple as fitting an Anti Siphon Device, anti siphon devices are simple to fit, taking no more than a few minutes, with no drilling or gluing to a fuel tank.

TP Anti Syph can be fitted to all types of tank: bayonet, screw type & bus /coach.

Truck Manufacturers include, Volvo, MAN, DAF, Iveco, Scania, Renault, Foden, Hino & Mercedes.

Petrol In Diesel

July 29th, 2011 Comments off

aide automotive have introduced a new website to protome the Solo Diesel mis fuelling device for cars & vans.

SoloDiesel is a unique, patented solution to protect your diesel  vehicle from being filled with petrol.

In the past, there have been several attempts to solve  misfueling, only SoloDiesel provides a physical barrier to prevent this  problem.

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.

This new website is an informative site that explains mis fuelling, wrong fuel, petrol in diesel or Right Fuel.

You can purchase a Solo Diesel for any car or van at the Petrol In Diesel website.

Car Fuel Theft

Following many calls to protect cars from fuel theft, we can offer a solution as described below:


The Conical Spring has been used to great effect within the light commercial sector for many years, this device is the only reasonable solution we can offer the car market.


This email will in best describe the product  / system so that you can make your own judgemental view if the spring will suit your car or requirements. aide automotive do not offer any refund or returns policy if this product does not work for your particular vehicle.


We firstly advise you to review  with your local garage or manufacturer if the Conical spring can be fitted to the fuel neck  / entry to the fuel tank. The Spring is supplied 360 mm in length, this can be cut down to a required length.


As it’s a conical spring the end diameter is 55mm. See attached document for a picture.


The idea is that the spring is sent into the filler neck and lodges when the diameter is larger than the internal diameter of the filler neck, the spring will sit tight tin the neck making very hard to be removed. As it’s a curled spring fuel will be able to flow into the tank while re fuelling.


Once you have decided the correct amount of spring to be used any excess is cut off with a practical saw.


Examples of use –


Ford Transit – The whole spring is pushed into the neck until full compression, a small amount is cut off and the spring is lodged behind the entry.


Iveco Daily – A small amount of the spring was used to be situated at the entry to the fuel tank in the plastic pipe.


Landrover  Defender – Roughly half the spring was used and pushed into the entry, compressing and holding in place.


Once you have discussed this with a car garage or your manufacturer and if you wish to purchase we can take payment via credit  or debit cards.


We hope this helps and please if you do proceed offer feedback on fitting or use.
