The Co-op Group is fitting its HGV fleet with a cutting-edge security device to prevent siphoning, skimming or spillage for fuel.

It is of the first businesses in the UK to install fuel security firm Tiss’s Impregnable – HF device.

The fuel safety and security device has a locking float valve which rises with the pressure of the fuel in the tank during filling, locking off as the fuel level reaches the top of the tank.

It prevents fuel from rising into the chamber and therefore stops any skimming from across the top of the tank. It also stops over-filling and spillages.

Jon Paul Brown, head of transport at the Group, said previous versions of the TankSafe Impregnable had demonstrated clear benefits, adding: “It was clear fitment of the new upgraded HF device would deliver even better results.

“We took the decision to fit the ‘Impregnable – HF’ to further enhance our vehicles’ protection against fuel theft and to continue our focus on operating one of the safest, and most fuel-efficient fleets in the UK.”

Paul Cook, Tiss’s head of business development, said: “We have worked with the Co-op for over 10 years and have helped them optimise their fuel usage successfully using our state of the art technology.

“Rolling out the new ‘Impregnable-HF device across the fleet will continually ensure that all fuel from the pump will be used where it should be, which is by the vehicles, on the road.”
