Paccar Parts has released the Acrafit anti-siphon device to help heavy-duty truck operators prevent fuel theft. The product is a one-piece design with openings no larger than a ¼ in. It includes an anti-siphon line available in various sizes to fit all major OEM fuel tank applications and comes with a 10-yr., unlimited mileage warranty. The aftermarket device is easily installed in the neck of the fuel tank and is designed for rapid fueling.
“Earlier this year, as diesel fuel prices reached an all-time high, many truck operators and fleets saw days, even weeks worth of their hard-earned money evaporate in as little as a few hours,” says Jeff Sass, general marketing manager, Paccar Parts. “Five gallons of diesel fuel can be siphoned from a fuel tank in just 90 seconds. That makes large trucks, which can carry up to 300 gallons of diesel fuel, lucrative targets.”
