Default World First Technology for Future Land Rover Product




Quote:
CHATSWOOD, AUSTRALIA April 30, 2009: Land Rover has taken the initiative with the standard fitment of a petrol fuel guard system to its Range Rover Sport 10MY and Discovery 4 diesel models. This technology prevents the accidental filling of diesel vehicles with petrol, an increasing common and expensive issue for motorists.

The innovative petrol 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 petrol nozzle is inserted into the vehicle, thus preventing petrol being dispensed into the diesel tank.

The system distinguishes between petrol and diesel nozzles because thinner unleaded petrol dispensers go deeper down the neck of the vehicle's fuel tank, thus activating the shutter.
Land Rover Australia General Manager, Roger Jory, commented "Mis-fuelling 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."

The Range Rover Vogue currently on sale in Australia is fitted with preventative mis-fuelling technology as a standard feature on all its diesel models. The new generation Range Rover Sport 10MY and Discovery 4, incorporating this preventative technology, are planned to go on sale in Australian late 4th quarter 2009.

And I wonder how many times they've seen this issue to make a fix for it.

For a company that sits at the rock bottom of reliability surveys year after year after year, that seems to be kind of a petty thing to spend R&D money on. But then what do I know, I'm not their target demographic.

I agree that one should be very aware that their vehicle is diesel and not full up with gas, but didn't a major US auto mag recently did the same thing with one of their long term vehicles. I will have to look up which one.

Well I know someone who did the opposite and filled his 1.3l leaded petrol Fiesta with diesel. He was too busy chatting some girl up, to pay attention to the colour handle he;d just grabbed. By the time he realized what he was doing, the tank was about 2/3rds full, and his chances of a) getting home, and b) getting laid, were just about zero.

'course, I got to knock out a set of clutch plates by towing the silly bastard home.

It was Car and Driver and it was a Subaru Legacy. It was a few issues ago, probably in 08 sometime.

Seriously? Land Rover's build quality is piss poor (no offense to any owners here, but most are problematic), and this is what they work on fixing? I've never owned a diesel, but I have driven quite a few when I was in the car business. I seem to remember the diesel pumps were a larger diameter than standard gasoline? Was this just my imagination?

@ the people here who seem to think Land Rover has focused 100% of their attention on this single problem for the last year or so, ignoring everything else.
