In an effort to combat fuel theft from drop tanks, Flint Loc announced the successful integration between the Simmons fuel management system and its “Real Time” Security Solution. As such, a pump alarm will be triggered when 50 or more gallons of fuel are suddenly removed from a drop tank.
The measure is designed to help diminish the risk of drop tank theft, where thieves steal gasoline by driving a panel van with a hole in its floor over a drop tank and take hundreds of gallons of fuel while the sales clerk is distracted.
When the alarm is triggered, the sales clerk and law enforcement authorities are alerted, and an alert is emailed and/or texted to other appropriate parties. If the theft happens after store hours, the notification system alerts the authorities.
