    We are caravanners and, whilst on a campsite a couple of years ago, the fellow on an adjoining pitch showed opened his tank flap, and a recorded voice said, "this is a diesel car". It was a Honda, and I initially thought it was pert of the car's technology. In actual fact, it was a small device which the owner had himself attached to the inside of the filler cover.
    I have yet to locate one of these units. They are a good idea, and I would fit one.

    Update: I have just been on Google. This warning device for fitting inside the filler cover of a diesel car is advertised at Halfords, price £6.99 but, of course, is not available at the moment.
