27/05/2006 | PREVENTING FUEL THEFT
Sales of TISS’ anti-siphon devices continue to rocket as customers recognise the financial savings by preventing fuel theft.
Fowler Welch Coolchain Ltd equip their entire fleet of vehicles with the “Easy-Fit FloatChamber” fuel anti-siphon. National Fleet Manager, Robert Oliphant praised the device: “upon fitting the TISS anti-siphon, we were very pleased to see an almost immediate improvement on the vehicles’ MPG performances”.
TISS Sales Director, Ryan Wholey, explains: “our unique design prevents ‘skimming’ of the top few centimetres of fuel which accounts for 99% of fuel theft from HGVs. Since fitting the anti-siphon some of our customers have reduced their fuel bills by 6%”.
Co-Operative Retail Logistics fit the “FloatChamber” device to all new vehicles after Fleet Engineer, Ron Dovey, realised the unit was minimal in cost: “By fitting the anti-siphon at newbuild, the cost of the anti-siphon is lost in the total capitalisation of the truck”.
TISS Sales Director, Ryan Wholey, added: “With new trucks costing in excess of £50,000, the cost of the anti-siphon device is negligible. However, the device pays for itself many times during the total lifespan of the vehicle by preventing fuel theft.”
TISS also sell a range of GPS tracking solutions, and offer "Bronze, Silver or Gold" tracking options with a range of functionality to suit different customers’ needs. Companies who have bought TISS tracking solutions include Exel, Nestle, Reality, NCP and the Ministry of Defence.
Sales Director Ryan comments: “our Bronze, Silver and Gold range enables us to provide a customer with the perfect solution, whether it’s just locating their spot hire trailers once a month, or complex fleet management tailored to their needs. With prices from only £1.50 a week, we also offer the cheapest tracking solutions in the UK.”
