Fuel expense consists of 20~30% operational cost of trucking haulage, transport& logistics delivery business. Fleet manager& operator has never stopped finding the best solution to mitigate the risk of fuel theft.

There are also some other anti-fuel theft solutions with camera engaged. But the camera is offline and no recording when vehicle switches off. Some dashcam, MDVR may set up as ignition-off 2 ~24 hours delay recording. If vehicle battery can sustain 16- or 24-hours ignition-off delay recording, that probably help capture theft during parking mode. For most vehicles, it takes the risk of draining battery. In addition, recording as long as 16 or 18 hours of conventional footages to contain exceptional theft footage is not best way of utilizing the camera system, and a waste of HDD storage space.
You never know when the fuel theft will come, so you cannot preset exact ignition-off delay recording. The longer the hours of ignition-off delay recording are, the more likely you will capture the exceptional events. However, it is not best way of utilizing the camera system, and a waste of HDD storage space. Fleet manager will check the historical trip breakdowns to check the standstill positions, and request the video retrieval on-demand for pre/post event time on condition that constant video footages are recorded on the HDD or SD card during the ignition-off.
