The discovery of automobile vehicles is the blessing to human being from engineering and science. The uses of automobile are increasing day-by-day as a transport vehicle. The majority of the transport vehicles are powered by traditional petroleum fuel such as gasoline, octane, diesel etc. The price of these transport fuels are also increasing worldwide and the high oil price becomes a factor of concern for civilization. From this point of view, advanced security system should be ensured for the fuel safety. The objective of this project is to describe the automatic prevention of fuel theft. A project has been made by suing vibration sensor, solenoid valve and Arduino board. The fuel flow path closed normally with the help of solenoid valve and alert if theft happen through alarming system which is working with the help of vibration sensor. The solenoid valve is activated by the key of the bike this ensure the fuel path open and made the fuel flow to the engine. If suppose the key ignition is locked then the fuel path also locked. Then the vibration sensor is activated whenever the key of the bike is locked. The activated vibration sensor is ready to receive the vibration. If vibration occurs then it send to the alarming system and alert the fuel theft. This entire function is controlled by the brain of the system which is the Arduino board. The brain consists of transformer, relay circuit, micro controller. Transformer is used to step up the require current to activate the solenoid valve then the relay circuit is used to control the high voltage It has been found that it is a very low cost technology and it can be implemented only for two-wheelers.
