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