Why buy a TruckProtect Product?
Fuel theft or contamination makes a large hole in your profits. Just 25 litres of diesel taken from a vehicle per week is £1,000 pounds of lost profit over the course of a year. If you lose tankfull, that is £500 or more in one go... and add to that downtime, penalties and the hassle factor.

Fuel costs are unlikely to go down and this problem is increasing. TruckProtect products are designed as a cost effective deterrent.

How do the TruckProtect products help my drivers?
They give peace of mind to drivers – that they have a deterrent which will encourage thieves to go elsewhere and that they will never be falsely accused of skimming their own tank. And for you this means no tedious disciplinary procedures or Union concerns.

Will CAP-IT!™ fit my truck?
CAP-IT!™ fits virtually all modern makes of truck. Most trucks have a diameter of between 104-107mm but Scanias have a smaller neck size of approximately 84 mm and we only currently stock the standard size. We are sorry but if your tanks have the smaller neck size our CAP-IT!™ will not fit

What about the space between the fuel tank and the body of the truck?
The CAP-IT! is just under 75mm in height. We recommend a gap of not less than 175mm from the fuel tank to the body of the truck or trailer. This will allow you plenty of space to take the top cover off when you are filling your tank. If the available space is less then contact should be made to our Design and Manufacturing Director, Richard Fowler, to discuss alternative versions.

What if the Customs & Excise want to test your fuel?

Customs and Excise may want to test your fuel to see whether you are using illegal diesel and they have a legal right to do so. Firstly, the likelihood of a truck being stopped and suspected of illegal fuel use is uncommon. If you consider trucks greater than 3.5t in the UK being about 500,000, buses and coaches about 200,000 and a further several million lighter vehicles, approximately 750 million “commercial vehicles days” occurred. The likelihood of being stopped is less than 0.01% on any day and then only fuel sampled if some degree of suspicion by the Customs Officer.

If fuel is initially unobtainable through an anti-siphon unit then under the supervision of the customs officer, a sample could be provided from near the fuel filter close to the engine (not a major effort to jack up the cab and requiring little skill to start the truck again as most systems are self-bleeding) or from the sender unit on particular trucks (the officer would be able to verify to the employer if a tamper unit has to be broken to allow access). Additionally, a sample could be offered by the driver using a thin pipe through the anti-siphon unit, however, the customs officer might still require an additional sample. In extremis, the customs officer could ask for the anti-siphon device to be removed – in the case of TruckProtect’s InstantFit NECK-IT!®, the inner security ring (SecureRing) will be removed and the customs officer will again be able to verify this to the employer to avoid the driver being suspected of fuel theft. No damage would occur to the InstantFit NECK-IT!® and the employing company are then able to re-order SecureRing to replace the broken one.
