First-Ever Fuel Guard To Debut On Diesel Models

Back to Main Page
Posted On: Apr 30, 2009 By: Category: Land Rover News

An amazing new technology actually prevents you from mistakenly filling your diesel Sport or LR4 with gas. 

It’s easy to do… and hard to fix. You pull up to the pump, insert the nozzle into your fuel tank, start pumping and realize – too late – that it’s gasoline, not diesel, you are pumping. Fixing that problem is expensive and time-consuming, but thanks to the amazing minds at Solihull, it’s no longer possible.

This fuel guard system was pioneered by Land Rover on the 2007 model Range Rover Vogue TDV8, a world-first technical solution. Land Rover's innovative system is incorporated into the vehicle's diesel filler head and automatically activates the intervention of a mechanical shutter if a gas pump nozzle is inserted into the vehicle.

OK, so how does it know the difference between gasoline and diesel? The thinner unleaded gas dispenser nozzles go deeper down the neck of the vehicle's fuel tank. When it feels this happening, it activates the shutter and voila – no gas enters the tank (although some of it might spill out of the tank and back onto your khakis!).

Land Rover Australia General Manager, Roger Jory, said "Mis-fueling is an expensive and complex problem to fix, Land Rover was the first manufacturer to address this increasingly common issue, and is now incorporating this preventative technology into its new generation of vehicles."

I guess when you’ve fairly exhausted your reservoir of high-tech enhancements you can make to a vehicle, you get pretty creative in your search for potential new problems to fix. Kudos to Land Rover for keeping up the search.
