Yale Materials Handling has released a fuel level sensing system with a view to reducing workplace downtime due to forklifts running out of fuel.

The new Optical Fuel Level Sensor is an option on all of the company's Veracitor VX LPG trucks and offers a more reliable indication of when an LPG truck is beginning to run out of fuel. According to Tom Pickering, the company's product strategy manager, conventional systems can give as little as 30 seconds warning before trucks grind to a halt. The new sensor gives up to 15 minutes warning, which can help improve efficiency and reduce operating costs by providing drivers with the opportunity to work a little longer before stopping to refuel.
