We are experiencing a period full of price increases in every sector. The fuel sector is no exception. Diesel and petrol have returned to fairly high levels. For this reason, many are making attempts to limit the disbursement of money when full. In this article we will talk about a trick starring the normal roll of kitchen paper. What can be done? Here are all the details about it.
The topic related to fuel prices held court in Italy for almost a year. In fact, since the outbreak of international tension between Ukraine and Russia – at the end of February 2022 – there has been a real surge in the price of petrol and diesel. The increases have occurred in all sectors of our daily life. For this reason, anyone who tries to find out the best moves to save as much petrol as possible from the station.
To consume less petrol, we recommend that you always maintain a gentle driving style. In fact, sudden accelerations and braking must be avoided. Furthermore, traveling at a moderate speed will allow us to travel tens of kilometers more with a full tank of fuel. Small details that can make the difference at the end of the month.
From 1 January 2023, the Meloni Government has chosen to eliminate the cut in excise duties on the price of petrol and diesel. A move that has caused the price of fuel to skyrocket again to quite high levels.
Below, we will talk about a trick used by someone regarding the delivery of gasoline. Why could the kitchen roll be of great help to you? Let’s find out all the details on this topic.
The kitchen roll allows you to discover an important detail: that’s what we’re talking about
The crisis and price increases affect everyone to a certain extent. In recent days we have witnessed the shameful speculation on petrol pricescarried out by some unscrupulous petrol station owners. The Government has put a stop to this unfortunate situation. Starting this week, in fact, every distributor will be obliged to show the average prices of the fuel price lists, updated daily. A transparency that will guarantee greater serenity and respect for the rules. But what do we need Scottex for?
Some distributors try to sell illegal fuel in order to save as much money as possible. All this, of course, at the expense of the customer. It happened some time ago in Ireland that an owner of petrol pumps has mixed gasoline with kerosene. The result? Hundreds of machines have been compromised – in part or completely.
Gasoline mixed with kerosene, in fact, causes very serious damage to the engine. Kerosene is used to fuel airplanes, but it’s no good for cars. If you notice anything strange when you turn it on, then stop. Indeed, kerosene does not burn like petrol and, therefore, the car will have much more difficulty starting.
Kerosene does not evaporate as quickly as gasoline, being made up of heavier hydrocarbons. The consequences for your car could be devastating.
If something does not convince you, then it is advisable to know that there is a very practical method to find out the actual quality and consistency of the fuel placed inside the tank of your car.
All you need to do is take some normal Scottex used in the kitchen, take a few drops of petrol from the car tank and pour it on the paper. Both gasoline and kerosene have very little difference in color, while they differ greatly in smell. Kerosene smells very similar to acetone and is particularly annoying for our nostrils, unlike that of petrol.
In this way you will be able to find out if you have actually been the victim of a scam at the time of refueling. You will, however, have saved your car!
