One of our customers was experiencing regular thefts from his on-site diesel tank. So he decided to do something about it. He started sleeping in his car overnight to keep watch. After a few days, the problem was solved – no more missing fuel! Until the next night when he went home…
Steep rises in fuel costs coupled with a struggling economy have created increasing reports of fuel theft. It happens everywhere – from drive offs at the gas station pump to the siphoning of large quantities from on- site storage tanks at local businesses. Oftentimes the culprit is your own employees.
It’s an expensive problem but fortunately there is something you can do about it – without losing sleep. Atlas has partnered with Michigan based Burlingame Industries to distribute its TankShield™ product in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. It does just what it name implies, shielding your tank from potential theft.
The TankShield fits on top of any size fuel tank. It has a puck style lock which has been proven to be an effective theft deterrent. It’s easy to order and install.
If you are concerned about fuel theft, give us a call. Atlas can help you stop losing both fuel and sleep.
