H Mills protects against fuel theft with aide automotive

H Mills Transport of Loughborough has recently installed four TankGuard alarm systems supplied by vehicle equipment provider aide automotive, in a bid to protect its fleet against diesel theft.

TankGuard deploys a sensor fitted externally in a discreet location on the outside of the fuel tank. If thieves attempt to remove the locked cap, 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 sounding, to drive the thieves away.

“Running a haulage company, one of our most expensive outlays is fuel,” said Mark Mills, owner of H Mills Transport.

“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 three 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 peace of mind.”

TankGuard can be installed by any competent vehicle workshop or by aide automotive’s installation team.

The company also markets anti-siphon devices as a further means of fuel protection – while recent reports of diesel theft being perpetrated by removing the fuel tank sender unit has prompted the firm to introduce Sender Safe, said to provide a robust protective shield for the sender unit.
