In this research paper, a novel solution of the fuel theft occurring at the remote cellular base stations has been proposed. The fuel level is monitored by using a GSM signals and is monitored remotely. Further the efficiency is also monitored using the energy metering IC ADE7755 and the overloading on the generator can also be monitored using the proposed system.
