Diesel fuel prices are already high and the recent rise of crude oil to $100 a barrel looks sure to increase the pressure on suppliers to hike prices even further says TruckProtect, which believes the time for truck operators that have not already done so to protect themselves from fuel theft is NOW.
Higher fuel prices will inevitably increase fuel theft and operators need to consider the harmful impact this could have on the business says the company, both in terms of financial losses and service interruption.
The loss of a tank-full of diesel to thieves at any time can have dire consequences, and even the 'drip, drip' loss of a few gallons siphoned on a weekly basis has an impact on profitability over time, it adds.
The solution is simple. The InstantFit NECK-IT unit fits in minutes, accepts 120 ltr/min high speed pumps without splashback, and offers security right to the top of the tank.
Unlike other models on the market it enables Customs to take samples for analysis, fits every make and model of commercial vehicle – including buses, coaches and municipals – and is already the UK's best selling anti-fuel siphon device.
In only two years, TruckProtect has already sold over 50,000 InstantFit NECK-IT units to hauliers in the UK and across the world. Sales are booming, underlining the confidence transport operators have in its ability to stop fuel theft.
TruckProtect says its time others did the same. Units are available directly from the company, or nationally through DAF-TRP, MAN, Isuzu and Unipart outlets. And payback is just a matter of weeks.
A solution to fuel theft exists, and it works. Now all those who remain potential victims to this growing crime have to do is fit it, before it's too late!
