About TankSafe®

TankSafe® South Africa

TISS Ltd was founded in 2001 in the United Kingdom. TankSafe® South Africa was launched as a joint venture in 2018 to provide a local presence on the continent. TankSafe® is manufactured in the UK and India to strict ISO standards. TankSafe® has sold over 2.3 million devices in over 60 countries.

We’re setting the standard in fuel security and safety solutions. Statistics show that the loss of fuel via siphoning, skimming, or spillage can account for 10% of your total fuel bill. This could be the difference between a profitable business and running at a loss.

Our patented anti-siphon devices are extremely effective, cost-efficient, and easy to install.

Why TankSafe® in Africa?

Diesel theft occurs in every country. What changes is the frequency of theft, the number of drivers that steal and the volume stolen.

In Africa:

  • Truck owner’s suspect that 80% of diesel theft is by their staff
  • Truck owner’s suspect that the average loss is 50L per truck per week
  • It is estimated that one TankSafe® ‘Optimum’ will pay for itself (through fuel theft prevention) in less than 4 weeks
  • If you prevent 50L of diesel theft per week per truck you save over R35k per year
    • Within 3 years you will have saved over R100k per truck
    • With 50 trucks this is a R5 Million return on investment in 3 years
    • With 500 trucks this is a R50 Million return on investment in 3 years
