The ‘Tip of the Week’- is on Heating Oil and Diesel Theft. The noticeable increase in theft of home heating oil and diesel should be of concern, most tanks are generally unprotected and unobserved and very easily accessed which leads to stolen oil supplies. It is preferable that the tank be in an area which may be observed by the household or by a neighbour. It may be screened by fencing, trellis or hedging. Consider installing a motion sensor or light sensor in the area. Ensure you have a lock on the tank.
