Authentix fuel markers could deter thieves

Abstract:
A fuel marker so complex that it is all but impossible for thieves to replicate has been developed by scientists at Dallas, Texas-based science company Authentix. The marker uses nanotechnology-based components to identify illegal stolen fuel, and has already been taken up by Luke Oil, Shell and BP in the US. The marker aims to help reduce the theft of white diesel from vehicles, which is understood to be on the rise as fuel prices and duty remain high. Often regarded as a low-level crime in the UK - even though the average amount taken from a truck is more than 200 litres - the theft can amount to 840m a year and leaves hauliers working on thin margins hugely out of pocket.
