Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

The MIDAS touch

Berrys reports that recent occurrences of UK forecourt misfuels/crossovers have led to a noticeable increase in enquiries for its MIDAS misfuel prevention system.

The MIDAS valve is designed to prevent such incidents and avoid the costly consequences.

Whether it's diesel in the petrol tank or vice versa, it can be some time, with a large number of vehicles affected, before a mistake becomes apparent.

The final bill for repairs to engines, uplifting the fuel and cleaning the tank can be pretty hefty. And in addition, there's the damage to a forecourt's reputation and the price of restoring customer confidence.
