Fuel theft has become a major concern for gas station owners. It is mostly done by irresponsible drivers when they transport the fuel from terminal to gas stations. The proposed system is used to prevent this theft. The system consists of Arduino, GSM, GPS and flowmeter. This system will keep track of oil distribution from oil terminal to gas station, gas station to gas station and then return to oil terminal. The destination codes for the station for which the fuel is to be delivered is entered through the keyboard when the truck leaves the station. The one-time password will be generated and transmitted to the respective destination owners whose destination codes are entered. When the truck reaches the destination, the password received by that owner should be entered to open the bottom loader of the truck. The valve can?t be opened, if the password is entered wrongly. During this circumstance?s owner will receive an alert message along with the location of the truck. This application is useful to reduce fuel scarcity due to fuel hoarding and potentially help the owners from financial losses with the help of this simple and cost-efficient system. This system provides a better security system and prevents fuel theft.
