Kenworth adds anti-siphon device to trucks

KIRKLAND, Wash -- Kenworth is now offering a tamper-resistant, durable, metal anti-siphoning device as standard on all Kenworth Class 8 vehicles specified with round diesel fuel tanks.

The anti-siphon device, which is located on the tank filler neck, features a robust tamper-resistant heavy metal barrier that is a quarter-inch thick. The design, however, does not slow down the refueling process.

The truckmaker is likely reacting to a rash of diesel fuel thefts from parked trucks across North America since prices shot up dramatically over the last couple years.

Even as prices at the pump have come down in recent months, fuel siphoning continues to be a popular pastime among thieves.
