New Iveco anti-siphon device said to offer 75% more protection
The new product, TankSafe Daily, has been developed by Iveco in conjunction with long-term partner TISS Security Systems following requests from owners who are being targeted by fuel thieves with increasing frequency.
TankSafe Daily is based on TISS’ TankSafe Standard product for trucks and features the same level of protection but has been re-engineered specifically for the Iveco light commercial vehicle range.
According to independent tests conducted by Mi Technology – a major truck-testing organisation – the device is capable of offering 75% more anti-siphoning protection than the nearest competing model.
TISS claims the device stands out on the market for its 100% aluminium manufacture, which makes it resistant to corrosion and stronger than pressed steel variants offered by rivals. It also features a solid, patent-pending "dome" base, which is said to be attack-proof and means that it is not possible to siphon any fuel from the tank with the TankSafe Daily Anti-siphon fitted.
The TankSafe Daily is currently available exclusively through the Iveco dealer network and can be retrofitted to existing models, or added as a dealer-fit accessory on new purchases.
