From 1 April 2022 it will no longer be legal to use red diesel for non-road mobile machinery such as bulldozers and cranes or to power mobile generators on construction sites.

Red diesel can only be used for vehicles and machinery used in agriculture, horticulture, fish farming and forestry.

That means that many businesses which previously benefitted from the tax breaks on red diesel, such as construction sites, will need to swich to more expensive ‘white’ or regular diesel.

White diesel can be used by anyone … used in cars … used for commercial heating …. uses that were excluded to red diesel. This means that fuel stolen from sites can be easily sold on to a wide range of users, without the same fear of detection associated with red diesel.

At the same time fuel prices are increasing rapidly and many sites are remote, making their white diesel tanks even more attractive targets for fuel theft.

Sites will already be paying more for ‘white’ diesel and can ill afford theft, with the associated clear-up costs, disruption and penalties for late delivery on projects.

Powelectrics can help! We have been offering remote tank level monitoring solutions for fuel management and theft protection for over a decade.

Our robust, proven telemetry hardware can be battery-powered for use on remote sites.

Our telemetry platform can measure rate of change within defined time periods and issue alerts to multiple authorised recipients, available on any web-enabled device.
