Locking Diesel Head Misfuelling Prevention Device

The Diesel Head Misfuel Prevention Device can also prevent someone removing fuel from your tank with your permission.  Each year between 150,00 and 300,000 motorists pump petrol in diesel vehicle tanks, known as misfuelling.  This calls for the flushing out of fuel (petrol) from the diesel tank prior to pumping diesel in.  However, if the motorist has also started the motor there may be a bill for engine repairs too.

Fitting a Diesel Head – standard or locking – prevents this as the aperture of the Diesel Head Misfuel Prevention Device can only be activated by a diesel fuel nozzle, which is wider than a petrol pump nozzle.  So, motorists looking to protect their wallets and their cars should consider fitting a misfuelling prevention device  https://www.dieselhead.co.uk/the-diesel-head-misfuel-prevention-device/ and saying “no” to petrol in diesel tanks.
