How often does it happen?
Misfueling has doubled in 10 years
Last year 150,000 UK motorists misfueled
It happens over 400 times a day
That's 1 every three and a half minutes 24/7
With the increase in diesel car sales it is an increasing problem
Make sure you or your family don't become a statistic THiNK! Diesel
How does it happen?
It often happens where a family has more than 1 car
When cars are borrowed or hired
In companies with pool cars or car sharing
Or simply when your mind's on other things
What Problems does it cause?
95% of misfueling is putting petrol into diesel cars
Petrol permanently damages diesel engine components
It quickly strips all lubrication from the engine
High pressure diesel fuel pumps particularly susceptible
Switching on the ignition starts the process its already too late
Fuel lines and tanks must be drained and cleaned
Diesel parts require new replacement.
How much for that costly mistake?
Personally - inconvenience, wasted time and embarrassment
Financially - from £300 to £5,000
Can nullify car warranty
Often leaves long term hidden damage even after draining
Misfueling is not covered by your car insurance
It costs the UK over £400M per annum
This problem is here to stay....
So THiNK! Diesel before you fill, before you drive!
