Haha, ive heard of a few people who have done this, though not succummed myself yet.
If a car is filled with the wrong fuel, the tank must be drained, but ive heard of a few people who have realised their mistake after just putting in a gallon or two, then filled up with the correct fuel and got away with it.Edited by: cianpars
Without having the handbook in hand, or observing the nozzle arrangement except in my mind's eye, I'm finding it hard to imagine how its possible to prevent petrol being put in a diesel car. Is there some sort of notch on the petrol nozzle? Edited by: desthemoaner
The misfuelling inhibitor consists of a sealed filler pipe insert and fuel nozzle locator that guides the nozzle to the tank opening. The insert contains a mechanically operated diameter detector which only allows the larger diesel fuel nozzle to be inserted into the filler pipe, and locks out the thinner petrol nozzles.
