Audi’s misfuel prevention cap fitted to some 2011 and beyond models

Audi introduced a fuel filler cap to a number of its 2011 models so as to prevent drivers misfuelling – pumping petrol in diesel car. Such an error, known as a misfuel, can be costly. Visit http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motoring/audi-aims-stop-misfuelling to see an article.

However, Audi owners with older models may have to consider retrofitting a misfuel prevention device, such as the Diesel Head, see https://www.dieselhead.co.uk/store/fitting-guide/diesel-head-fits/ for information. The Diesel Head Misfuelling Prevention Device’s design prevents petrol nozzles accessing the fuel inlet pipe of a diesel car – a simple yet effective solution to a problem that occurs in the region of 150,000 times a year.
