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