Is this a minimal pair with the hand used for petrol or pistol in the Brazilian Sign Puddle? Would you know they were different signs? Can you give an example where you couldn't use that handshape? 
Adding a new handshape takes months to put it into the SignPuddle and the next edition isn't for at least 5 years.
