TankGuard is the latest product to protect truck diesel theft from HGVs. The TankGuard fuel theft alarm will activate once the fuel cap is removed or a potential thief tampers with the truck tank.
H Mills Transport of Loughborough installed 3 TankGuard systems at the start of 2017 and with the increase of the fleet, a 17 plate Renault had a TankGuard fitted as standard.
TankGuard has a 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 alarm giving a deafening warning to drive the thieves away.
Mark Mills Owner of H Mills Transport said “Running a haulage company one of our most expensive outlays is fuel. With this I have taken the best approach to consolidate this commodity. Installing fuel tank alarms from aide automotive has further protected my trucks from the unwanted attention of thieves. Since installing 3 tank alarms at the start of the year I have further fitted a new truck with the TankGuard alarm. Having confidence my trucks are protected with a quality product gives me piece of mind.”
Fuel theft occurs in many ways, aide automotive market anti siphon devices for the cost-effective approach to fuel protection and with the Fuel Tank Alarm for the tank attacks.
Recent reports of diesel theft by removing the Sender Unit has prompted aide automotive to design another solution. Sender Safe is a robust and easy to fit protective shield for a Truck Fuel Tank Sender unit.
TankGuard can be installed by any competent vehicle workshop or by our installation team.
