All too often, an unhappy driver finds the cap broken and the fuel tank dry. Scania therefore offers a Fuel Theft Alarm, with an installed sensor that monitors the fuel level for both single and double fuel tank installations.
A tank of 600–1000 litres can be emptied in just a few minutes with a high-capacity pump. The consequential damage is not only the loss of fuel and time but can also generate additional costs for road assistance or penalty fees for a delayed transport.
INSTANT RESPONSE - If the level drops significantly, the alarm is activated and emits a high-pitched sound, which it shares with the normal theft alarm system. The alarm is also activated when the fuel tank cap is tampered with. The customer will also receive an e-mail, text message and a warning notification in their Scania Fleet Management Portal if they have the Control Package.
DETERRENT DESIGN - A great advantage of the Fuel Theft Alarm is in deterring presumptive thieves through the design of the fuel cap on the tank that warns that the fuel is protected.
