As we continue to sympathise with these families, we must not forget the dangers posed by fuel siphoning. Petroleum products are very volatile and thus highly flammable and in case of a leak, there are high chances it will result in a fire.
One way this can be managed is by actively and continually educating the population on the dangers of fuel siphoning and also punishing those who seize every opportunity to siphon fuel.
Investigations into fuel siphoning
from the Mombasa-Nairobi pipeline has taken a new twist after detectives turned their attention to Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) staff.Sources familiar with the ongoing search for the masterminds of the scheme, where a pipe was welded onto the 20-inch KPC line and an unknown amount of fuel stolen in Mlolongo, said there is suspicion of collusion between insiders and suspected criminals.
The incidence of fuel siphoning
or malicious contamination of fuel in parked cars is statistically negligible.
The brothers realised there was a real market opportunity if they could come up with a solution and were confident they could design and develop a market-leading device to prevent fuel siphoning
* Watch for signs of fuel siphoning
or leaks in flight, crosschecking with gauges.
Illegal fuel siphoning
as a result of a thriving black market for fuels has increased the number of oil pipeline explosions in recent years.
Manufacturers have long known of the danger of fuel siphoning
, yet many fail to incorporate inexpensive antisiphoning devices in their fuel systems, leaving many drivers and their passengers vulnerable.
They were later released.Menengai police say fuel siphoning
in the area "is a thing of the past".
"They also ventured into illegal fuel siphoning
I suggest that we have speed monitoring devices so that fuel siphoning
and speed can be monitored and prevented.
