ABOUT two litres of diesel fuel was sprayed onto the Midland Highway on Monday morning.
A Country Fire Authority (CFA) crew was sent out to Epsom BP Petrol Station at 10.48am.
Senior Station manager Mark Nevill said a “saw dust material” was put on the fuel to help soak it up.
“A bit of fuel came out the vent pipe,” he said.
“It was only a very small amount but because of the wind and the pipe is up high it has just sprayed it over the road.”
Mr Nevill said a driver was filling up his diesel tank when the incident occurred.
“Normally the fuel will come out the top of the pipe and dribble down but because of the wind, the fuel sprayed onto the road,” he said.
Mr Nevill said the driver did the right thing by calling CFA.
