Should it not be fueltype=diesel;lpg;petrol? Or just lots of 
fueltype=diesel;fueltype=lpg etc.

There are lots of instances where we need multiple values for tags, it would 
make sense to standardise on a method like separation with semicolons or 
multiple entries and encourage all apps to support that.

Better than new keys for every fuel type!
