While most FBOs do a great job of keeping fuel orders straight, mistakes can and do happen. As for pilots, sometimes it's not feasible to stand around waiting for the fuel truck to ensure the right fuel is being poured into the aircraft tanks.
FuelTape is a highly durable, weatherproof masking tape that clearly indicates to the fueler which grade of fuel must be used. Simply tear off a piece and stick it over the fuel caps and you have a low-cost, reliable system to keep your tanks safe.
FuelTape is available in both 100LL or Jet A versions. The colors and design conform to FAA standards. FuelTape is a simple product that both eliminates mistakes and gives the pilot piece of mind that they can go off and handle other business.

This Tape may have saved my pals life when he was at a MMOPA safety convention. Th lineman was just about to fill his Malibu with Jet A and quickly realized after seeing the tape over the fuel cap it was a piston (LL100) not turbin (Jet A) engine.
