New 'Solo Diesel' helps avoid misfuelling

More than 150,000 people every year put unleaded petrol into diesel cars, with repair bills often running into thousands of pounds. But avoiding misfuelling just got a whole lot easier with the arrival of the new and improved aftermarket cap.

Solo Diesel now has five safety hooks that recognize the diameter and block the petrol fuelling nozzle, three more than the original. This improves the function of protection from misfuelling and at the same time means that the cap position on the filler neck is no longer relevant – the only important thing is that the cap is screwed on firmly enough.

The new generation also brings the lower height and more oval shape of the Solo Diesel cap. With that the Solo Diesel installation is even easier as there are no longer issues with the outside flap closing on some vehicles. In total the product now covers approximately 95% of all diesel vehicles.

Simultaneously we introduced two new cap bayonet models – SD9 and SD10. SD10 was developed for Citroen and Peugeot vehicles and SD9 was made for specific vehicles such as Ford Transit.

The response of the next generation product continues to go from strength to strength says managing director Lee O’Neill. ‘’The whole team continue to be amazed and the response of this unique product in the UK marketplace’’ Lee comments, ‘’consequences of filling petrol fuel into the diesel engine are always connected to cost and trouble, nobody in today’s fast paced living needs or wants that hassle’’
