Ok I have been thinking about something for a while which i find very annoying at petrol stations and i reckon a simple device could be invented quite easily..
Ok he goes.
Whenever you fill up your car, theres always that little bit of dribble that comes out the nozzel, even if you really try to shake it (ok ok stop giggling at the back, this is serious
), still a bit always drips out, if your not careful loads can dribble out....... now look at petrol stations, look down around the pumps, loads of petrol leakeage all over, not only dangerous but wastful!!!! in this day and age of high priceses for fuel and heath and safty, why is no one sorting this out... Hell my Spider even has a design feature of a rubber 'sheild' to stop the drips going down your car.... you look at disel cars alot have have fuel leakage down the sides especailly the vans..
You add up the millions of people filling up cars daily in britain, and add up even each small thimble full of 'dribble' from petrol nozzel, thats alot of petrol wasted over a week , month and a huge ammont over the year.... And who pays for this ultimatly...we do.
The petrol companies probably don't care they still get paid for it, oil companies wont care. Maybe someone should..
Thanks for reading if you have, i'm quite serious about this wasteage and a solution. Let me know if anyone feels the same, or even if this has ever been dicussed before or in place abroad....
