Miss-fuelling incidents up slightly in 2012 says AA

Miss-fuelling incidents up slightly in 2012 says AA

Incidents of motorists accidentally putting the wrong fuel type in their cars would appear to have increased slightly this year according to the AA’s annual breakdown review.

The AA also shares that it’s far more common to make the error of putting petrol in a diesel engine that the other way around because the standard diesel nozzle is larger than the fuel filler neck on modern petrol cars: men are more inclined to make the mistake than women.

Another very common human error call out AA Patrols are tasked to year round is keys locked inside vehicles, something which women seem to do more often than men.

Flat batteries and punctures as ever remain the most common cause of breakdowns on Irish roads.

Batteries were at the route of 24% of call outs received by AA Patrols over the last 12 months.

The percentage of breakdowns relating to steering, suspension and brake issues for example grew slightly this year in tandem with the age profile of vehicles on our roads.

According to the 2011 Irish Bulletin of Vehicle and Driver Statistics,

79% of private cars in Ireland were four years and older while

60% were six years and older.
