Diesel misfueling device
#1
The Berlingo I pick up next week will be the 1st diesel car I´ve ever owned. I recently hired a diesel van and, you´ve guessed it, put petrol in it which emptied my wallet of £209 to have it drained :brickwall:. I know that at some point I will do the same with the Berlingo :'(

I´ve been having a look around for one of the misfueling devices as the £40 - 50 is definitely worth it for me. But I can´t seem to find one that will fit the Berlingo.

Does anyone have one on their Berlingo? If so which one?

Thanks

Just have a sticker in the fuel entry orifice that says diesel, job done, I've run a petrol car and a diesel van for years with no slip ups, and without a sticker :p

Haven't seen such a device. I double and triple check each time I fuel as this is the first diesel I've ever owned (and I'm a firm believer in Mr. Murphy' law).

This one looks promising:

I´ve emailed them and asked if it´ll fit the Berlingo. I´ll let you know their answer. :thumbsup:

Had some black gunk at the bottom at the bottom of the petrol cap and once I cleaned it off I found a sticker that says diesel under the dirt

Halfrauds do a little diesel misfuelling alarm that fits inside the fuel flap. Not listed on their website, but saw them on the counter yesterday. Think they were £6.99.:thumbsup:
Had a quick read of packet and emits an annoying little noise which makes you think "Ah, annoying little noise, must put diesel in."
Often its the simplest ideas...Confusedcratch:

This looks a good idea.

But no mention of Berlingo.
Might be worth an email?
Or this one.
http://www.solodiesel.co.uk/
Fits current model, but not Mk1 or Mk2.
And finally....
Found the one I saw in Halfrauds... on eBay.

And only 99p.
Hope these help.
