I know how much it costs to remove petrol from a diesel fuel tank, but for a £1.00 you can save £100's with this little device.

The Think Diesel Audible Warning Device is a fantastic product that will remind you every time when you need to put more fuel in your vehicle, that you need to put diesel in. When your filler cap is opened, the light sensor is activated and the message plays: "Stop, Diesel, Remember, Diesel!" In case you pop open your fuel filler flap from inside the vehicle, the device will sound a second time. This will help you to prevent the costly mistake of filling a diesel car with petrol.Think diesel is designed to fit most diesel cars but not all. the space required behind the flap to fit the unit is 72mm x 32mm x 10mm depth.

Petrol in Diesel car easy fix. just takes a long time to pump it though using the primer pump.

Diesel in a Petrol car is much worst.

Excellent for a Quid, going to buy one for my numpty Dad

Petrol in a diesel car is a killer, especially the more modern diesels, the amount I've drained over the years is incredible & more so lately, dont know whats going on, lack of concentration I guess ! & its not a cheap job either for the customer !

No spoken by someone with a little bit of sense!!

You would have to be a real numpty to mistake a Black diesel pump for a Green petrol pump..Maybe a lesson in special needs would come in handy, if you cannot differentiate between diesel and petrol you shouldn't be driving on the road!

Just check the price. the one that you need to re-mortgage to fill the tank is diesel!

Your comments are a little offensive crazylegs ''lesson in special needs''... please be aware that the comments you make amount to the person you are (take a little time to work that one out). I think it could be an easy mistake to make, especially with kids winging, late for work, etc etc. Of course crazylegs, I bet you have never made a co@@up, from your Ivory Tower and all.....

There are so many arrogant, nay ignorant, **** on this forum. 'crazylegs' and 'showman36' being prime examples.

When you switch from diesel to petrol in different cars i have to check and check again.

Isnt the petrol feeder tube slimmer that the diesel therfore you shoulnt be able to put diesel in a petrol tank ?

Or a i mixed up.


Edited by: "Robo" 22nd Apr 2011

We don't all drive the same car day in day out. We have a diesel and a petrol one quite easy to get mixed up when refilling. The filler nozzles are the same size. I think fords have different sized filler caps

great device as running diesel neat or nearly neat petrol will damage your injection pump and maybe injectors very expensive can be £1000 or more for parts on many cars

Could be useful for people who drive differently fueled cars at different times or for people who have been driving petrol cars for years and just moved on to a diesel.

As for the rest of us I imagine that it could get pretty annoying very quickly. Still given it some heat for those who might benefit.

Actually, I have done it as I drive a diesel van for a living and after an early start to take my daughter to school for a trip and needed to fill up...............

Banned

why on earth is there a need for this device? If you drive a diesel car you fill it with diesel!
similarly, if you are a man you go to the gents toilets, not the ladies unless accidently on purpose!

Good idea - but the message it plays is a bit too OTT for me, especially for it to play twice. Can't imagine you'd be the coolest dude at the petrol forecourt anyway.

Banned

tell you what, I'll give up my job and frequent the local forecourt and when Mr or Mrs **** forbrains pulls up I'll shout loudly in their ear "Diesel you ********" and charge them a £1 each time.
Is this a viable business plan?

I agree that SHOWMAN36 made a foolish comment but you don't know what paper he reads, if any, and his paper choice is irrelevant. I take it that as you have spelt Daily Mail as "Daily mail" that you read the Daily Mirror.

i would hope if you have the ability to pass a driving test you would also have the ability to know what fuel your car runs on, its not like they are hundreds of choices

I'll get one for the wife. We've got a diesel and a petrol and i'm confident i'll put the correct fuel in, not so sure about her though.X)

By design there should be a restrictor fitted to cars that can only take unleaded. This was also to stop people filling them up with four star 'back in the day'. So it is easier to put petrol into diesel than the other way round. However, the restrictor is usually a few inches into the pipe, so it is possible to get diesel into a petrol car.

As mentioned earlier, petrol in a diesel car is no longer the 'safe mistake' it used to be, so this device is a decent idea. I couldn't bring myself to fit it though, it would be too embarassing! The closest I would get to a reminder is a 'diesel' sticker above the filler.

you can tell whats a diesel engine or petrol engine by looking at your rev counter on your car or van (if you have one) ie red line at 4000/4500 diesel or red line 6000/6500 petrol, thats one way

I don't know, I can imagine someone who has only owned petrol cars for 30 years getting a diesel, and forgetting themselves just once.

Guess this gadget would only really appeal to those people.

Could be a boon for car/van hire companies !!

Just make sure you don't fit this to your petrol motor!

I wonder if they also make a device that reminds you which pedal is which.

Just do what the police, hire companies and everyone else do; stick a label on the fuel door/cap that says DIESEL on it.

You don't even need to do that, the noise should give it away.

I can understand if it's a car you're not familiar with, but for anyone to not actually know whether they're driving a diesel or a petrol regularly, just goes to show how little attention is paid to driving these days.

People actually use that!?

You'd look a right tool filling up.
