Commercial Diesel Theft

Fuel thieves typically assess opportunities during the day time and strike at night or weekends.

Be aware of loiterers and strangers walking through your vehicle parking areas and challenge any suspicious behaviour.

Helpful tips:

  • Store diesel in a secure fuel tank and use good quality locks.
  • Avoid installing storage tanks in isolated areas such as outlying buildings.
  • Consider using a mobile tanker that could be removed to a secure place when not in use.
  • Consider the use of a diesel dye; that makes your diesel traceable and therefore less attractive to thieves.
  • Report incidents of suspicious activity to the police and if possible record vehicle details and descriptions of the people involved.
  • Consider fitting alarms, gates and lighting.
