The misfuelling prevention device

Gaping hole ahead – increase in fuel duty or charges for electric vehicle charge?

The growing number of motorists who are either turning away from traditional diesel and petrol vehicles in favour of electric and hybrid cars or choosing more fuel efficient cars over gas guzzlers could lead towards a £13bn chasm in Treasury funds, according to a report commissioned by the RAC Foundation. It is suggested that the shortfall in revenues could prompt a number of responses from the Government. Among potential Treasury strategies are the options of significantly increasing fuel duty, dropping the zero rate of Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) for electric cars, charging drivers more for electricity to charge the electric vehicles or raising income tax.

Misfuelling prevention device - no petrol in diesel

Diesel Head Misfuelling Prevention Device.

Those motorists, meanwhile, who are sticking with petrol and diesel motors look forward to times when supermarkets engage in fuel price wars as a way to reduce expenditure.  The fuel duty still remains constant in such instances, of course, but the drivers are just happy to save money.  Why then do they run the risk of misfuelling – pumping petrol in diesel tank? Many believe that a misfuel will never happen to them but where is the guarantee that they won’t be distracted at the key moment and select the petrol fuel line in error and only realise when they have pumped litres of petrol in diesel tank or, worse still, completed the transaction and driven away only for the engine to suffer?  Fitting a misfuel prevention device can do away with the potential of pumping petrol into a diesel car and give peace of mind.  Visit for more information.
