Anybody else seen these stickers on the fuel pumps recently?
I saw them this morning at my local Asda (filling up the non-Alfa).

https://knowyourfuel.campaign.gov.uk/


The 'aim' is to make it easier for customers to choose the right fuel. What, by renaming Petrol to E5 and Diesel to B7? So now, I have a 2.0L E5 engine in my 145.
When I filled up the pump handles were still black (diesel.. sorry, 'B7') and green ('petrol') but the guidance documents make it sound like it is not mandatory:

"Retailers are likely to continue to call these fuels “petrol” (or “unleaded”) and “diesel”."

I bloody well hope they do. I bet the companies who tow away and de-contaminate wrongly-fuelled vehicles will be rubbing their hands with glee!!

What about higher performance fuels like Momentum99 / V-Power etc. What designation do these have? I haven't been told about those in this campaign... rant.gif

I did see those B7 and E5 notes on pumps recently, but I didn't realise it was a 'movement'
