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

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!

July 10th, 2013 Comments off

Hounslow has been reported as the worst London borough for Fuel Theft from vehicles.

This information is based on figures obtained from the Metropolitan Police.

The West London borough had a total of 175 reports between 2009 and 2012, but only five prosecutions.

Greenwich, Lewisham, Southwark and Merton also emerge in the top five boroughs for Fuel Theft.

The Met said the majority of thefts were from commercial haulage vehicles which were prominent in Hounslow.

EBS ABS Brake Tester

May 6th, 2010 Comments off

Ford & Slater the well known midlands DAF dealer, recently purchased 13 ISOCheck Test Leads for use in all depots.

ISOCheck is the ideal first step to check the electrical information that runs between a tractor unit and trailer. Whether the trailer is EBS or ABS the ISOCheck will check all voltages and earths on the ISO 7638 socket, if any pins are the ISO socket are incorrect the ISOCheck will light up RED, if all pins are correct the ISOCheck will light up GREEN.

ISOCheck is the ideal tool to save time and confusion by directing the user to the tractor unit or trailer.

The ISOCheck also checks the trailer and existing suzie, once the tractor unit is tested, turn the ISOCheck around so the indicator plugs into the trailer, again RED equals fault but with the trailer! Two greens and a ABS warning light on in the cab would suggest the existing suzie lead is at fault.

The ISOCheck is ideal for Ford & Slater as they can confirm tractor units are producing the correct information when under service or inspection, a quick and simple test rather than the confusion of using multimeters!

Anti Fuel Theft Device for Travis Perkins

November 18th, 2009 Comments off

Travis Perkins, one of the UK’s leading Builders’ Merchants, with more than 600 outlets across the country, was looking for an effective solution to the growing problem of fuel theft.

As the company runs one of the largest vehicle fleets in the country, preventing fuel theft and keeping costs to a minimum was a top priority and it investigated an anti fuel theft device.

Requiring no drilling or gluing, it is simple to fit in several minutes and it can also cope with fast-filling of fuel tanks at speeds of up to120 ltrs/min without spilling or splash backs.

Travis Perkins Group Transport Manager Graham Bellman said: “Fuel theft is a problem, and it impacts directly upon our bottom line.

“You cannot stop the most determined of fuel thieves, but this anti fuel theft device provides a valuable defense, and a positive deterrent against fuel skimming.

“Coupled with our other security measures, and very careful fuel use monitoring, a good anti-siphon device offers very definite protection against a problem that is getting more, rather than less, pronounced.

”It is a very simple, but extremely worthwhile product that, for a very modest outlay, can save a lot of money.”
