That the premium unleaded hose on a petrol pump is longer by about 6 inches?
You can't see it very well on here but it is, check it out next time you
fuel up. It is certainly true at Tesco. The reason why? Well this
might sound sexist but I'm pretty sure this is true.
Mainly women go shopping, a lot of women can't park very well (I know a
lot who can but I have seen a lot more who can't)
After shopping you go to get fuel, they possibly have a couple of
screaming kids in the car, it is busy so they have to use the pump on
the 'wrong side' of the car IE not the side with the filler cap.
They go to fill up with normal unleaded, but because they have not
parked close enough to the pump the hose won't reach, so what do they
do? The first thing most people will do over getting in the car and
getting it closer to the pump is try another hose 'just in case'. Guess
what? the other hose (for other, read premium) reaches. So they fill up
with premium (read more expensive).
I guess this could be the same with deisel and premium deisel.
Have a look next time you fill up..
