The misfuelling prevention device

Is 300,000 the new 150,000 when it comes to misfuelling?

Don’t pump petrol in diesel vehicle’s tank.

Diesel Head has to date quoted statistics offered up by motoring organisations in relation to misfuelling – when motorists mistakenly pump petrol in diesel vehicles’ tanks – and the historical statistic has been 150,000 incidents of misfuelling per annum.

A well known retailer now reckons that in the region of 300,000 misfuels occur annually and only half of vehicle owners, 150,000, are able to claim on insurance.

The thinking here is that even if a motorist is able to claim on insurance for misfuelling, it is likely that the cost of insurance premiums, the incorrect fuel (petrol), the call out to flush the diesel tank and the cost of the correct fuel (diesel) will be more expensive than buying a standard Diesel Head Misfuelling Prevention Device at £39.99 plus p&p.
