Truck diesel particulate filters contain valuable precious metals that are attractive to thieves. FuelDefend USA is now offering a product to help prevent DPF theft.

The product comes from a UK-based company, TruckMinder Worldwide. It's being marketed in the U.S. as VehicleProtector! by FuelDefend USA, which markets the Neck-It! anti-siphon device.

The alarm uses patent pending technology to detect any irregular movement on the exhaust system. It is automatically armed and requires no driver input. Once activated an alarm is sounded. An optional text message system is available alerting designated people of the crime along with the vehicle registration number.
