CAN I REDUCE THE RISK OF MISFUELLING?
Misfuelling only takes a moment’s distraction, so pay attention if you’ve bought a new car or are using a different one. You’re also more likely to misfuel in an unfamiliar petrol station, or if you’ve started using a different fuel brand.
When fuelling up, don’t allow yourself to be distracted by other people including your passengers. Finally, never assume hose colours are the same, as they can be different at various petrol stations or change without warning.
Misfuelling is a costly mistake that is easily avoided. Simply pay the same level of attention at the petrol station that you do when you’re on the road, and if you do misfuel, don’t let the problem escalate.
