Around 150,000 UK drivers of cars and vans put the wrong fuel into their tanks every year and this has prompted manufacturers to fit new cars with anti-misfuelling flaps, which act to stop the driver from putting the wrong type of fuel pump nozzle into the fuel tank. However, it can also make it difficult to get fuel into the tank in an emergency from a can, or even to put in fuel additives.

These two new fuel and additive funnels from Laser Tools (part numbers 8020 for the petrol version and 8021 for the diesel version) have been designed to open the internal flap in the filler neck and allow fuel or additive into the tank.

The funnels are manufactured from tough polypropylene, the petrol example has a 21mm outlet (the same as the petrol pump on the forecourt) and the diesel version has a 24.5mm outlet.

They are available now from your local Laser Tools stockist, great value and typically priced at just £4.59 each (price includes VAT). Always remember to check for the best prices and special offers.
