Gasoline guns are mostly using similar forms of circular pipe on their design, the only way to tell which fuel it is inside is by external labels or signs. If drivers are careless and confused, misfuelling might happen easily, then cause serious damage to the engine, even breakdown. In UK, over 150,000 drivers put the wrong fuel in their cars every year.
To emphasize the legibility of gasoline guns, the concept uses common geometry shapes as a fixture, and install on both gasoline gun and vehicle fuel filler, to show the relationship directly. There will no longer be any misfuelling, drivers can save their time and money on repair.
