Scania therefore introduces the Fuel Theft Alarm, with an installed sensor that monitors the fuel level, initially for single tanks and very soon also for the more common double tanks.
If the fuel 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. When activated, the alarm system monitors the fuel level for up to 65 hours, provided that the truck’s master battery switch is activated. 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.
