Frequently Asked Questions

Is your product safe and will it cause any issues to my plant engines ?

We have been supplying this product for over 14 years in the transport sector in the UK. We have many references which demonstrate its success and quality.

DieselDye is Blue, I would like a green Dye?

We strongly advise against a green dye as these may show similarities to the Republic of Ireland rebated fuel. If the Road Fuel Testing Unit were to attend its most likely that the site would be shut down until every item of plant has been tested. This would cause severe disruption and loss of work output. The likelihood is that they would return frequently to ensure compliance.

Would DetectaDye™ be good to protect my construction fuel?

The plant OEM’s are seemingly resistant to an additive as well as a Dye. Synthetic based DNA’s are attracted to plastic and as the majority of plant fuel tanks are made from plastic we would not recommend a DNA based solution.

The price of fuel has gone through the roof, I’m not sure we can afford to pay more to dye it?

These are unprecedented times for businesses as well as consumers with the high costs of fuel as well as  the cost of living. There has been a surge in fuel thefts since April and this will be likely to continue. The costs to protect your fuel is less than a quarter of one pence per litre. 

We already have Wireless CCTV in place, why would we then need to dye it?

To answer this, it’s the fuel that they are after, we have seen that bowsers have been positioned and moved around site to where the cameras cannot view the fuel theft. Using Wireless CCTV does have its own risks as these can be disabled by the use of GPS Jammers which can disrupt 3G,4G and 5G mobile signals from up to 40 meters away
