Unlock your fuel tank for any additives


 As manufactur­ers are overcoming the challenge of 150,000 UK drivers putting the wrong fuel in their tanks, it makes sense that they’ve fitted new models with antimisfue­lling protection methods behind the petrol and diesel caps.

However, positive as these safety measures may be, they restrict drivers’ abilities to get fuel into the tank in an emergency from a can. The same is true of using many fuel additives. Made from tough polypropyl­ene, these funnels from Laser make filling your tank a breeze.

There are variants for petrol (part number 8020) with a 21mm outlet and diesel (part number 8021) with a 24.5mm outlet have been designed to open the internal flap in the filler neck and allow fuel or additive into the tank.
