The misfuelling prevention device

Stationary and stationery – petrol ‘n diesel

A colleague found it hard to remember which was which from stationery and stationary.  We said that ‘stationery’ has ‘er’ as in paper and ‘stationary’ includes ‘ar’ as in park.  According to a survey by a well-known insurance brand, motorists are parting with plenty of paper money to pay for parking, nearly £8 billion last year.

The cost of petrol and diesel and insurance is focusing drivers attention on reducing financial outgoings. While the difference in spelling may fuel confusion, the spiralling cost of parking is fuelling a desire among drivers to avoid shopping areas which charge high prices for the privilege of parking.
