This invention is an anti-theft device used to prevent company driver's doing these bad actions:
Overfilling: a fleet driver fills a side container after fueling the fleet vehicles.
Misuse: an employee uses a company fuel card to purchase fuel for a non-company asset.
A fuel card or “fleet card” is used as a payment card for gasoline, diesel, and other fuels at gas stations. Fleet cards are provided to a paid driver by the employer and/or vehicle owner to be used to pay for fueling the vehicle. Fleet cards provide a level of security as they may be limited in use for only purchasing fuel, thereby preventing fraud. However, many hired drivers circumvent the use of fleet cards by fueling other vehicles in exchange for cash payment.
This device will be useful to prevent the resale of fuel in commercial fleet vehicles. If the fuel is paid with fleet fuel cards and placed into the fuel tank, then this device will measure the amount of fuel place into the fuel tank. Whit this, the amount can be compared with the amount on the receipt showing the correct amount of fuel that was purchased for the company driver and placed inside of the company vehicle.
A tubular-shaped body is inserted into the filler neck/opening of the fuel tank.
Security tabs/teeth allow to permanently fix the device to the fuel tank and prevent theft and/or tampering.
Interior housing features a flow meter/ propeller fan which measures the fuel.
The screen generates a unique code each time to retrieve current meter reading.
The main body houses a flow meter measuring the amount of fuel being pumped through the T.T.F and into the fuel tank
(An extender can be placed if nozzle end is longer than standard sizes)
