The misfuelling prevention device

Diesel models dominate top estates

In the USA they are known as station wagons while in Britain we know them as estates or shooting brakes.  Whatever you call them, they are practical and, these days, can be stylish too.   Fuel economy also matters, so it is perhaps not surprising that diesel models feature as the recommendations of a respected media member’s list of 2012’s best estates.

It may be worth pointing out, however, that as the population of diesel models grows, so does the opportunity for motorists to misfuel – mistakenly pump petrol into the tanks of diesel vehicles.  Figures for the number of misfuels range from 150,000 to 300,000 but, irrespective of which statistic is the more accurate, each can prove to be a logistical and financial nightmare for the motorist concerned.  At the very least, petrol will have to be flushed from the diesel tank and new diesel purchased. Repairs may be required to the engine if the motor was started and the vehicle may be off the road for some time.  And, of course, there is the money wasted on buying the petrol in the first place, not to mention the inconvenience and disruption to travel.
